The New York Times: Χτύπημα drone στη Μόσχα

Drone strikes in Moscow
A number of attack drones were downed over Moscow yesterday, the first time civilian areas of the Russian capital had been touched directly by the Ukrainian conflict and a signal that a distant war might soon begin to feel somewhat less so for ordinary Russians. Apartment windows were shattered, and there were some minor injuries in one neighborhood.
The drones, numbering at least eight, came as Russia was engaged in a sustained aerial assault on Ukraine’s capital, Kyiv, in which one person died. Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, blamed Ukraine for what he branded “terrorist activity” in Moscow.
Mykhailo Podolyak, an adviser to President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine, said Ukraine had not been “directly involved” in the attack in Moscow but was “happy” to watch the events taking place across the border. A spokesman for its air force, which typically maintains a policy of strategic ambiguity over attacks on Russian soil, declined to comment.
Analysis: “If the goal was to stress the population, then the very fact that drones have appeared in the skies over Moscow has contributed to that,” wrote one pro-war Russian blogger, Mikhail Zvinchuk, who posts under the name Rybar.
