Ukrainian forces have targeted the Russian capital in an attempted coordinated drone attack, with almost a dozen of UAVs intercepted over Moscow, Bryansk, Kaluga and Tula regions early Sunday morning, according to the mayor and the Defense Ministry.

“A massive drone attack was attempted tonight… The air defense forces shot down UAVs in the area of Naro-Fominsk and Odintsovo city district, en route to Moscow,” mayor Sergey Sobyanin said on Telegram on Sunday morning.
