Ukraine drones hit Moscow on Day 3 of Russian blitz on Kyiv

The Russian Defense Ministry said that eight Ukrainian drones had damaged residential towers in Moscow, prompting evacuations, on Tuesday in what it described as a “terrorist attack.” Russian forces were said to have intercepted all the drones, with three “suppressed by electronic measures” and five shot down by Pantsir-S missiles. US intelligence officials  said one of Ukraine’s special intelligence units probably orchestrated the drone attack. No one has claimed responsibility for Tuesday’s explosions or those at the Kremlin earlier this month.

Explosions that shook the Ukrainian capital Kyiv for the third night in a row killed at least one person. Ukrainian officials reported that more than 50 buildings and vehicles were damaged in Kyiv’s suburbs from falling debris.
