Ukrainian drones have carried out “attacks on infrastructure facilities” in Russia’s Kursk region, according to Russian officials, resulting in widespread power outages.
According to Kursk Governor Roman Starovoyt, the districts of Sudzha, Korenevo, and Glushkovo were hit overnight and emergency response teams are already working to restore electricity supply.
According to Russian Telegram channels, the explosions at an electrical substation in the Kursk region left 67 settlements without power.
Kyiv Post sought to ascertain the responsible party for the attack and reached out for comments from the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) and the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense (HUR). At the time of publication, the SBU had not commented on the drone attack, and there was no response from the HUR.
The SBU recently executed a “blackout” operation in the Kursk region by targeting an electrical substation on the night of Sept. 29, citing its connection to vital Russian military facilities.
On Sept. 26, a Ukrainian drone targeted an electrical substation in the Russian village of Snagost in the Kursk region. The drone deployed an explosive device on the substation, resulting in power disruptions affecting seven settlements in the region.
A source within the SBU, speaking to Kyiv Post, emphasized that these operations represent a new level of their special operations capabilities.
