Russia talks of retaliation after ‘Ukrainian drone strike’ near Moscow army HQ

Russia has accused Ukraine of carrying out a drone attack in Moscow, damaging buildings including one near the Defence Ministry’s headquarters. Russia has described the incident as a brazen act of terror and threatened to take harsh retaliatory measures. Although no one was injured, the attack highlighted the capabilities of such drones. Roads were temporarily closed, and windows were blown out of an office building in another district. The Russian Foreign Ministry stated that all those responsible would be found and punished.

The Kremlin has stated that it will continue its campaign in Ukraine and achieve its objectives, despite claims from Kyiv and the West that it is a brutal war of conquest. The drone attack in Moscow, while not causing significant damage or casualties, was the most high-profile incident of its kind since drones reached the Kremlin in May. Additionally, a swarm of 17 drones launched attacks on Crimea, resulting in damage to an ammunition warehouse and a residential building.

The Russian Foreign Ministry condemned the Moscow and Crimea drone attacks as terrorist acts and intimidation by the military and political leadership of Ukraine. They have reserved the right to take harsh retaliatory measures. Former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev suggested that Russia should broaden the range of targets it strikes in Ukraine, using high-impact unexpected and unconventional methods.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, who rarely comments on attacks inside Russia or Russian-controlled territory, promised retaliation for what he called “Russian terrorists for Odesa.” This refers to Russian missile strikes against targets in the port city, which Moscow claims were in response to a Ukrainian attack on the Crimean Bridge that killed the parents of a 14-year-old girl. Ukraine has reported that a Russian drone attack destroyed Ukrainian grain warehouses and injured seven people.

Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister Mykhailo Fedorov referred to the drone attacks as targeting the capital of “the orcs” and Crimea. He stated that electronic warfare and air defense are becoming less effective against the occupiers. Fedorov, involved in Ukrainian efforts to create an “army of drones,” warned that there would be more attacks. Russia’s defense ministry claimed to have used radio-electronic equipment to bring down the Ukrainian drones, thwarting a terrorist attack. The Russian Foreign Ministry accused Ukraine of committing an act of international terrorism.

According to Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin, two non-residential buildings were struck in the early morning, causing no serious damage or casualties. Drone fragments were found near a building close to defense ministry buildings. Traffic was temporarily closed on affected streets. The focus now shifts to determining the origin of the drones and whether pro-Ukrainian saboteurs inside Russia were involved. After the previous drone attack on the Kremlin, experts suggested that the drones may have been launched from within Russia.

In conclusion, Russia has accused Ukraine of carrying out a drone attack in Moscow, causing damage to buildings. Russia has vowed to take retaliatory measures, while Ukraine has promised further attacks. The incident highlights the ongoing conflict between the two countries.
