Oekraïense drone komt binnen 100km van Moskou
March 1, 2023 - The appearance of a Ukrainian-made UJ-22 near the Russian capital comes amid a spate of reported drone attacks in the country. Kyiv does not claim responsibility for attacks inside Russia.
The drone attacks targeted regions inside Russia along the border with Ukraine and deeper into the country, according to local Russian authorities.
A drone fell near the village of Gubastovo on February 28, less than 100 kilometers from Moscow, Andrei Vorobyov, governor of the region surrounding the Russian capital, said in an online statement.
Photos of the wreckage suggested it was Ukrainian-made UJ-22, with a reported range of up to 800 kilometers.
The same day, Russian forces shot down another Ukrainian drone over the Bryansk region, local Governor said in a Telegram post.
Three drones also targeted Russia’s Belgorod region on the night of February 27, with one flying through an apartment window in the capital, local authorities reported. The drones caused minor damage to buildings and cars.
The Russian Defense Ministry said Ukraine used drones to attack facilities in the Krasnodar region and neighboring Adygea.
Drone strikes launched in December targeted several airfields used by Russian bombers but it was not immediately clear if they were launched from inside or outside Russian territory.
