Russia mentioned it shot down 5 drones over Moscow, blaming Kyiv for the second such obvious assault on the capital in two months.
The defence ministry known as it a “terrorist attack”. No harm or casualties have been reported.
Flights to and from Vnukovo airport, considered one of Moscow’s three principal airports, have been suspended at 5am native time for “technical reasons, beyond the control of the airport”, the Federal Air Transport Agency mentioned. Flights resumed three hours later.
“The Kyiv regime’s attempt to attack an area where civilian infrastructure is located, including the airport, which incidentally also receives foreign flights, is yet another act of terrorism,” mentioned overseas ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova.
Russia repeatedly assaults Kyiv with drones, killing and injuring civilians and destroying infrastructure and residential buildings.
