"Two Ukrainian drones attacked Kurchatov in the morning. An administrative building and a residential house were damaged," the local governor reported.

Drone attacks in Russia

The largest drone attack on Russian territory occurred on the night of August 30th, when drones attacked six regions of the Russian Federation. One of the targets was the Pskov airfield, where, according to Andrii Yusov, a representative of the Defense Intelligence of Ukraine, four Il-76 planes were destroyed. Several more planes were damaged.

According to RBC-Ukraine, the operation was organized by the Defense Intelligence of Ukraine, but their involvement in reconnaissance has not been officially commented on yet.

Mikhaylo Podolyak, an advisor to the President's Office, stated that the strikes on Pskov indicate that the war is increasingly shifting to the territory of the terrorist country, and this process is irreversible.

Additionally, unknown drones were reported in the skies over Krasnoyarsk in the Moscow region on August 31st, as well as in Moscow on the night of August 31st, when airport operations were suspended again.
