Drone attacks in Russia

Explosions and large-scale fires regularly occur on the territory of the Russian Federation. Some of them, in particular, are associated with drone attacks.

On December 16, the Russian invaders complained about an alleged drone attack on the territory of the temporarily occupied Crimea. The Russians claim to have "shot down" as many as 32 drones.

On the evening of December 15, a series of explosions occurred in Kursk. The number of "downed targets" over the city differs in the statements of local authorities and the Russian Defense Ministry.

On the night of December 14, Russia claimed that a UAV attacked and was destroyed near Moscow. In the morning, RBC-Ukraine's sources in the special services informed that the drone attack on Russia was a special operation of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry's Main Intelligence Directorate. The targets of the drones were in the Moscow and Kaluga regions.
