Explosions in Russia

In 2023, the number of drone attacks has increased in various regions of Russia, including Moscow. Explosions and fires have become more frequent, affecting different areas.

On November 23, explosions occurred in the city of Lytkarino in the Moscow region, leading to power outages in several localities in the Moscow suburbs.

Ukrainian intelligence has warned residents of the Russian capital not to relax, as the frequency of drone attacks is expected to rise.

On the evening of November 10, explosions were reported near the Konstruktorskoye Byuro Mashinostroyeniya (KBM) corporation in the Moscow region, where Kinzhals and Iskanders are produced.

One of the significant attacks took place on the night of July 30 when unidentified drones targeted the business center Moscow City, hitting the so-called government tower, housing the offices of the Ministry of Economic Development, the Ministry of Industry and Trade, and the Ministry of Communications of the Russian Federation.

Brigadier General Sergey Baranov recently stated that Ukrainian forces are preparing for a large-scale winter attack on various regions of Russia using kamikaze drones.
