Multiple explosions at the Federal Customs Service building in Moscow
A series of seven separate drone attacks have rattled the Bryansk region in Russia today, as confirmed by the governor, Alexander Bogomaz.
The attacks targeted various locations, including an industrial building, a train station, and other vital infrastructure, leaving the local authorities on high alert.
Governor Bogomaz kept the public informed throughout the day, posting updates about the drone attacks on his Telegram channel.
The first attack was reported at 4am BST (6am local time), with subsequent attacks following throughout the day.
Governor Bogomaz assured the public that, despite the high volume of drone attacks, there have been no reported casualties. However, some buildings and vehicles in the affected areas sustained damage.

The motivation and origin of these drone attacks remain unclear at this time, and it has not been officially verified how many attacks have occurred in Bryansk today.
One drone targeted Moscow, but was shot down southeast of the city without causing any damage or injuries, Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said.
Two more drones were shot down over the southern region of Rostov, which borders Ukraine, said regional Governor Vasily Golubev.

The debris fell in the center of Rostov-on-Don, the region’s capital, damaging several cars and shattering windows in three buildings, Golubev said. One person sought medical assistance.
Two other drones were shot down over the Bryansk region, which also borders Ukraine, Governor Alexander Bogomaz reported. Drone debris damaged a railway station and several cars, he said.
Russia’s Defence Ministry blamed the attacks on Ukraine. Ukraine usually does not take credit for strikes inside Russia. However, the attacks on Russia come just a day after 16 people were killed suring an attack on a market in the ‘peaceful city’ of Kostyantynivka.
One of those killed in the attack, which happened in the middle of the day, has been confirmed as a child. Kostyantynivka, in Ukraine’s eastern Donetsk region, is near the front line.
Zelensky blamed Russia for the attack, describing it as ‘utter inhumanity’ and his wife Olena described it as ‘horrific cruelty’.
