Mikhail Podolyak, adviser to the Ukrainian president’s chief of staff, denied Kiev’s involvement in the drone attacks in Russia. He tweeted about it on March 1. The day before, unmanned aerial vehicles were seen in several regions of Russia.
“Ukraine is not hitting the territory of Russia. Ukraine is waging a defensive war with the aim of disoccupying all its territories,” the message read.
Podolyak described as “internal” attacks by “unidentified flying objects” against Russian infrastructure.
On the eve of February 28, drones were seen in settlements in several regions of Russia – in particular, in the Moscow region, Belgorod, Tuapse, the village of Novy in Adygea. On the same day, the sky over St. Petersburg was closed for about an hour. The media wrote that it could be due to the detection of an unidentified object in the sky. In turn, the Ministry of Defense explained the closing of the skies by air defense training “on the interaction with civil air traffic control”.
The commission of inquiry also declaredthat attempts to use drones against civil and engineering infrastructure in the Moscow region, the Krasnodar Territory and Adygea were made by Ukraine.
