Reports from Russia indicate that a massive drone attack has occurred in Moscow. One of these drones crashed into an apartment in a skyscraper, and two of Moscow's major airports are currently inoperable.

Moscow's mayor, Sergey Sobyanin, declared that a significant drone attack was launched against Moscow overnight. Sobyanin claims drones were intercepted and destroyed near the towns of Naro-Fominsk and Odintsovo, which are in proximity to Moscow. He also stated that several drones were intercepted and eliminated in the Bryansk, Tula, and Kaluga regions by the air defense.

According to "Ukrainian Pravda", thus far, there have been no reported fatalities or severe damage.

The Russian Defense Ministry has announced the destruction of 11 unmanned devices over Moscow, as well as the Tula, Kaluga, and Bryansk regions.

Reports also state a drone was shot down in Podolsk as it was seemingly headed towards Moscow.
