The Russian capital, Moscow, was attacked by Ukrainian drones equipped with weapons/explosives.

This news appeared on Russian social media platforms on May 30, 2023 and spread instantly.

In the circulating video, a low-flying drone is seen exploding in a field near Moscow and another is seen flying over homes in the upscale Rublevka neighborhood as well as apartment buildings in the southwestern district.

Other footage from the outskirts of Moscow shows the Pantsir air defense system attacking the Ukrainian drone.

The Ukrainian authorities have not yet issued a statement on the attack. Ukraine did not deny or acknowledge the attack.

The attack in May 2023 allegedly involved a UJ-22 drone, manufactured by Ukrjet, a Ukrainian company.

The visual evidence appears to align with images of these unmanned aerial vehicles, which have attacked Russia before.

The UJ-22 drone has a range of 800-1000 km. The drone is equipped with an autopilot system that allows it to operate without a GPS signal which is useful for evading enemy electronic countermeasures.

This feature allows the drone to operate in a variety of conditions, including severe weather and electronic warfare scenarios.

Sources declared that the UJ-22 can be armed with different free-fall bombs or four 82 mm mortar mines. The drone can also carry up to six PG-7VMs designed on the basis of the RPG-7 anti-tank missiles.

The UJ-22 also accommodates the UJ-31 Zlyva detachable ammunition under the fuselage.

The drone can accommodate a total payload of 20kg and is equipped with the ability to launch its payload at predetermined coordinates.

The system’s accuracy is impressive and it achieved a margin of error of less than 10 metres.
