Drone attack sets Russian cargo planes on fire


Russia has reported a night of drone attacks on its territory ranging from the south to the northwest.

A strike on Pskov airport, hundreds of miles from the war zone in Ukraine, set two military cargo planes on fire.

Russia’s military says it shot down Ukrainian drones over the Bryansk, Kaluga, Oryol, and Ryazan regions.

In recent weeks, Ukraine has increased its use of attack drones to strike targets inside Russia.

In the Ukrainian capital Kyiv, at least two people were killed during a missile attack blamed on Russia.

Russia also reported hitting Ukrainian assault boats in the Black Sea, killing dozens of soldiers.

The Ukrainian capital’s mayor Vitaly Klitschko says two people were killed and another wounded in the latest Russian air attack on the city. He also says several buildings were set on fire by falling debris.

The two people killed were men and were found in a non-residential building in the Shevchenkivskyi district, Klitschko adds.

More than 20 missiles and drones were “destroyed by air defence forces” overnight, the Kyiv City Military Administration wrote on Telegram, describing the aerial assault as “the most powerful” to hit the city since the spring.
