The moment of drone explosion near Moscow City caught on camera: special services were called to the scene
There was another explosion near the Moscow City business center in the center of the Russian capital on the dark morning of August 18. It was allegedly "attacked by a Ukrainian drone". A column of smoke rose into the sky above the towers after a bright flash.
The authorities of the terrorist state claim that it was the debris of the "shot down" drone that hit the roof of the Expocentre. No casualties and almost no destruction were recorded. The special services came to the place of the emergency already at dawn (to see the video, scroll to the end of the news).
The explosion in Moscow was heard around 04:00 on Friday. Propagandists claimed a "UAV attack", one of them hitting the Expocentre on Krasnopresnenskaya Embankment near Moscow City.
At the same time, Russian monitoring channels wrote that the impact partially destroyed the outer wall of one of the pavilions in an area of up to 30 square meters.
Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin assured that there was only one drone that was "destroyed by Russian air defense forces" when it flew over the city. He assured that the bright and loud explosion near Moscow City was only the result of the UAV debris falling in the area of the Expocenter, which "did not cause significant damage to the building."
This was also claimed by the Russian Ministry of Defense, blaming the "UAV attack" on Ukraine. The ministry reassured the Russians that the drone was hit by an air defense system and that it fell near Krasnopresnenskaya Embankment with "no casualties or fires".
However, as early as dawn, propaganda Telegram channels began to write that Russian police and special services had been called to the scene of the emergency. In particular, the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation arrived near the eighth pavilion, where the UAV debris was allegedly lying.
