Restriction comes after Ukraine launched two drone attacks overnight targeting the Kremlin
Moscow’s authorities have banned the unauthorized use of drones, the Russian capital’s mayor Sergey Sobyanin announced on Wednesday. The measure came shortly after a Ukrainian attempt to launch a drone attack on the Kremlin residence of Russian President Vladimir Putin, which failed to reach its objectives.
Writing on Telegram, Sobyanin said that the flying of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in the Russian capital would be prohibited starting from today, with an exception being made for drones used with the authorities’ approval.
“This decision was taken in order to prevent unauthorized use of UAVs, which could hamper the work of law enforcement agencies,” the mayor explained, reminding his audience that anyone who breaks this rule could face administrative and criminal liability.
