The war continues: The authorities in Russia reported this morning (Tuesday) another UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) attack that occurred in Moscow, where one of the vehicles crashed into a tower in the business district in the city center, causing damage to the building. The Russian Ministry of Defense claimed that two more vehicles were shot down in the air.
This is the second time this week that a reported UAV attack has taken place in the Russian capital city. In the previous attack as well, the tower in the "Moscow City" complex was hit. However, according to a statement from the Ministry of Defense, the UAV that hit the building crashed into it only after electronic jamming systems caused the aircraft to lose control, indicating that the tower was not the original target of the attack.
In the documents published on social networks, it appears that a large hole can be seen in the front of the damaged building, with many windows shattered on the upper floors of the tower. Following the attack, flights were halted at Vnukovo International Airport, which is located near the business complex where the UAVs were observed - but flights resumed a few hours later.
As expected, in Moscow they once again accused Ukraine of being responsible for the attack and claimed that it was a "terrorist attack by the regime in Kiev". In Ukraine, they maintain ambiguity and have not taken responsibility for the latest attacks, but Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky hinted that Kiev is responsible when he said the other day that "the war is gradually returning to the territories of Russia, and reaching its symbolic centers."
