Moscow airports suspend flights after Ukrainian drones shot down in Russia
Russia-Ukraine War: The three biggest airports in Moscow have suspended arrivals and departures today, Tuesday, August 22 after the Russian military brought down four Ukrainian drones near Moscow and over the Bryansk region that borders Ukraine, according to a report published by TASS News.
Reuters reported that one of the drones was shot down over Krasnogorsk, a town outside Moscow, that hosts the Moscow regional government. Russia’s defense ministry confirmed that there were no injuries in the latest attack.
“The air space is closed over Vnukovo, Sheremetyevo, and Domodedovo. Flights are not being received, departures are delayed,” said an official on the condition of anonymity as quoted by TASS.
Ukraine does not directly take responsibility for drone strikes on Russian territory that have increased recently, Reuters reported.
