The drone attack on Moscow was a powerful sign that the war is increasingly reaching Russia’s heartland. This came as an air attack on the Ukrainian capital killed at least one person.

At least eight drones targeted Moscow early Tuesday, according to Russian authorities, in the first attack to hit civilian areas of the Russian capital and a strong sign that the war is increasingly reaching Russia’s heartland.

The attack followed another nightly bombardment by Russian forces of Ukraine’s capital, Kiev, which has faced a barrage of attacks in recent weeks that have put the city on edge and tested the country’s air defences. Kiev was attacked by at least 20 drones early Tuesday, killing one and alarming exhausted residents still reeling from the rare missile attack the day before.

The mutual blows reflect the escalating tension and changing priorities ahead of the expected counterattack by Ukraine. Ukraine was increasingly pushing into Russian-controlled territory, while Moscow was adjusting its tactics in an attempt to inflict significant damage on Kiev.

Tuesday’s air attack on Moscow – in which at least three apartment buildings sustained minor damage – comes weeks after two explosions over the Kremlin, a bold and symbolic strike targeting the residence of President Vladimir Putin. US officials said the attack on the Kremlin was likely orchestrated by one of the Ukrainian military or special intelligence units.

Russia’s Defense Ministry blamed Ukraine for Tuesday’s attack on Moscow, calling the strike a “terrorist attack” and saying the drones were intercepted. Putin commented briefly on the attack, telling a reporter that Russia’s air defenses had proven their efficiency. “We have things to do,” he said in a video released by state media. We know what needs to be done.”

Mykhailo Podolak, an advisor to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, said Kiev was not “directly involved” but was “happy” to witness those strikes on Moscow. A spokesman for the Ukrainian Air Force, which usually follows a policy of strategic ambiguity about attacks in Russia, declined to comment on the attack.

We do not support attacks inside Russia

For its part, the White House said it “does not support attacks inside Russia” in the wake of the drone strikes in Moscow.

The statement also stated that “their focus is on helping Ukraine regain its sovereign territory.”
