Explosions erupted in the capital of Russia's aggressor country Moscow on the morning of 24 July, with Russians complaining of a "Ukrainian UAV attack" that blew out windows on the upper floors of a business center. Smoke was visible near the building of the Russian Defense Ministry.
Russian propaganda Telegram channels indicated that the explosions were heard around 04:00, they were also confirmed by the city's mayor, Sergei Sobyanin, who claimed a drone attack. According to OBOZREVATEL's sources, this "bauvna" is the result of an operation by the Ukrainian Defense Ministry's GUR - one of the drones fell near an institution that is engaged in cyber offensive (to view photos and video, scroll down to the end of the news).

"The explosion was very loud, the windows in the frames shook. At the moment there is no information about the dead and injured. Emergency services are following the scene," the propaganda channels added.

"Tentatively, that is where the UAV 'flew in'," one of the Russian channels wrote.

Later, RosSMI published a video of the alleged UAV flight over Moscow, as well as footage of the damage, which they called "the consequences of the crash of Ukrainian drones."

The Russian Defense Ministry itself said that "two Ukrainian UAVs were suppressed by means of electronic warfare."
