Officials in Russia say four drones strikes hit the country, while one crashed near village in Moscow region  

Russia has been hit by four drone strikes, one of which also reportedly crashed near a village in Moscow region.  

This statement was made by Russian officials, as cited by Euronews on Tuesday, February 28.  

The governor of the Moscow Oblast, Andrei Vorobiov, in a statement said that no casualties or destruction has been reported on the ground, adding, “the drone had crashed near the town of Gubastovo, about 100 kilometres southeast of Moscow”.  

Russian officials had earlier accused Ukraine of targeting sites of civilian infrastructure through drone strikes, which they claim are being conducted from the Black Sea coast.  

“The Kyiv regime tried to attack civilian infrastructure sites in the Krasnodar region and the Republic of Adygea with drones”, said a statement by the Russian defence minister.  

It also said that “The two drones were neutralised without causing any damage” 

It added that “the Russian Armed Forces’ radio-electronic warfare units neutralised the drones” and “One drone landed in a field, the other one deviated from the route and did not damage the targeted civilian infrastructure”.
