Drone attacks on Moscow

It should be noted that on the morning of July 24, Moscow was attacked by two drones. One of them struck a business center housing a "Leroy Merlin" store, while the other crashed near the Russian Ministry of Defence building and the headquarters of GRU cyber intelligence.

Russian Ministry of Defense quickly reported that they had "intercepted two drones" and accused the Ukrainian side of being behind the attack.

However, sources had previously reported that the drone attack on Moscow was a special operation carried out by the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ukrainian Ministry of Defence.
