Two unknown drones allegedly struck a Russian gas station in a sequential attack, with the first drone conducting the initial hit, with a second striking only after fire fighters and rescue personnel arrived in a Kremlin-style so-called “double-tap.”

Overnight on May 26-27, the two unknown drones allegedly attacked a gas station in the Russian city of Livny, Orel region apparently mimicking the Moscow method designed to cause casualties among those aiding in rescue operations. According to the governor of the region, Andrei Klitschkov, one firefighter was killed and three others were injured.

Klitschkov said, “Part of the facade of the administrative building was damaged, and emergency services and the city administration immediately arrived to localize and eliminate the consequences.”
