☆タイトル：'Attempts to intimidate Russia': Is the war moving closer to Russian soil? | DW News
Ukrainian authorities evacuated residents of a high-rise residential building in Kyiv in the early hours of Tuesday, after it sustained damage in the latest Russian drone attack on the Ukrainian capital. Falling debris sparked a fire in the building, Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko said. He added that at least one person was killed due to the fire in the district. Twenty people were evacuated, with an elderly woman hospitalized, Klitschko added. “Massive attack! Stay indoors!” the mayor said. Kyiv’s military administration said air defense forces destroyed over 29 out of 31 drones in the attacks. Serhiy Popko, the head of Kyiv’s military administration, said the attack was conducted using Iranian-made Shahed drones alone. Falling debris sparked fires also in the capital’s southern Darnytskyi district and central Pechersky district, the mayor said. Russia had fired a barrage of missiles at the Ukrainian capital on Monday in an unusual daytime attack. Russian forces often attack Kyiv overnight.
The war Putin unleashed on neighboring Ukraine moved a whole lot closer to home. The Kremlin is accusing Kyiv of launching a large-scale drone attack on Moscow. Several buildings were damaged, but nobody died. But the strike has sowed uncertainty and fear in the Russian capital. The defense ministry there says it shot down five unmanned aerial vehicles and diverted three others electronically. Although Kyiv denies any direct involvement in the attacks, officials there expressed satisfaction with Russia getting a taste of its own medicine.
Reacting to the news that Moscow had been hit by drones, the Russian president said it was an example of terrorism by Ukraine: “As you know, the Kyiv regime has chosen a different path: the path of attempts to intimidate Russia, Russian citizens and attacks on residential buildings. This is, of course, a clear sign of terrorist activities. First, I want to say that the Moscow air defence system worked in the regular way, although there are things for us to work on.”
How exposed is Russia to attacks and how tenable is the apathetic status quo in the face of the war moving closer to home?
