Russian authorities reported their air defense systems destroyed three drones early on Thursday, Sept. 7, which were trying to reach the cities of Moscow and Rostov-on-Don.

Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said that one of the UAVs was taken down in the Ramenskoye district, a suburb southeast of Moscow.

According to residents of Desantnoy Street in Ramenskoye, debris from the UAV was scattered all over the yard, and there was a small fire. Cars parked in courtyards were damaged.

The Moscow region has been targeted frequently by Ukrainian drone attacks in recent weeks, according to Russian authorities.

At the same time, Vasily Golubev, the head of the Rostov region in southern Russia, confirmed the downing of two drones over Rostov-on-Don.

The Rostov region’s head further detailed that both downed drones were neutralized, with one of them crashing in the heart of the city on Pushkinskaya Street. The incident shattered windows in three houses and damaged building facades and cars.


Golubev also reported a single casualty resulting from these events: a man sustained leg injuries but refused to be hospitalized.

Reports from the Telegram channel “Mash” indicate that the explosion on Pushkinskaya Street in Rostov-on-Don occurred two blocks from the headquarters of the Southern Military District.
