On the night of Saturday, August 26, all Moscow airports again stopped receiving and sending planes, and the Carpet plan was introduced. Local authorities said that the capital of the aggressor country was attacked by drones, and the Russian Defense Ministry boasted that they shot down one drone over the Moscow region.

Explosions were heard in the Istra district of Moscow. Russian propaganda channels posted videos showing the sound of a drone flying by, a loud explosion, and a bright flash.

The Russians in the network staged a tantrum because of a new attack on Moscow.

“Istra district, Monolith cottage village, just the sound of a whistle and an explosion! Just banged hard, I live in Istra. It was strongly audible at 3:02. Explain what happened! I don’t understand anything!”

“In the suburbs, drone! Why don’t they write that the airspace over Moscow is closed? Sheremetyevo and I have not been able to take off for 2 hours! I woke up from the explosions. Two shots were heard. They wrote on the net.

Later, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin announced the alleged downing of a UAV near the capital of the aggressor country.

“Tonight, air defense forces destroyed a drone on approach to Moscow in the Istra district. There were no preliminary casualties or damage. Emergency services are working at the scene,” Sobyanin said.

At the same time, airports are delaying planes for receiving and sending. The Russian media report that at least 24 flights have been delayed and eight canceled at Moscow’s Vnukovo, Domodedovo and Sheremetyevo airports.

On the morning of August 26, the Russian Ministry of Defense traditionally reported on the “suppression of the attack.”

“On August 26, at about 03:00, an attempt by the Kiev regime to carry out a terrorist attack by an aircraft-type UAV on objects in the territory of Moscow and the Moscow region was suppressed. The unmanned aerial vehicle was destroyed over the territory of the Istra district of the Moscow region by air defense on duty,” the department headed by Sergei Shoigu said.

As OBOZREVATEL reported, on the night of Friday, August 25, explosions thundered in the Kaluga and Tula regions of the aggressor country Russia. Because of this, airspace was closed over Moscow’s Vnukovo and Domodedovo airports.

  1. Very nice!

    I know that these attacks do not help militarily. However, they are still important. They remind the cockroaches in muscovy on a nightly basis that this is THEIR war, and that it has come home to its warmongers. It also helps the people in Ukraine, who are also terrorized every day and night. It really does help to know that the rats in mafia land are also being robbed of their sleep.

    • Well, I don’t know, ofp… In my opinion, those drones should better be targetted at arms factories, which may also be easier to reach, in the outskirts of cities. When Moscow shall be hit, why not target TV and radio stations, to disrupt Putins propaganda? To demolish villas and apartments of the rich may feel like good revenge, but won’t have any impact on the war, I’m afraid.

      • It is a good strategy. Why not terrorize the terrorists, and this right where they live? Maybe the AFU does plan these raids to do just that, what you suggest, but in a way that makes the drones fly over such neighborhoods on their way. Thus, if they do get shot down or disabled by EW, then at least they will do some damage there.

  2. I remember how in 2014 the Russians were bombarding Ukraine army units screening the boarder form inside russia itself and the Ukrainians were to afraid of provoking them to retaliate.
    Attacking Moscow was unthinkable.
    Now it’s a regularly scheduled event.
    My how times have changed.
    And the cockroaches don’t even understand what it means.

    • Indeed, before this war, Ukraine didn’t even dream of trying to liberate Crimea. Now, it’s a rock-solid part of its strategy.
