Explosions and "drone attacks" in Russia

In recent times, Russians have increasingly complained about the sounds of explosions.

For example, on August 26, near Moscow, in the Odintsovo and Istrinsky districts of the region, several loud explosions were heard. According to the mayor of the aggressor country's capital, Sergei Sobyanin, air defense forces allegedly destroyed a drone on its approach to Moscow in the Istrinsky district.

Prior to this, during the night of August 25, explosions were heard in the Kursk, Kaluga, and Tula regions of Russia, and airports in Moscow, including Domodedovo and Vnukovo, were temporarily closed.

It's also worth mentioning that on the night of August 22, "babovna" (explosions ironically) were heard in Moscow and the surrounding region. Something resembling explosions was reported in the Moscow district of Strogino and in Krasnogorsk, a town in the Moscow region.
