According to Governor Andrey Vorobyov, an unmanned aerial vehicle crashed near a Gazprom gas facility in the Kolomna region near Moscow on Tuesday. According to the official, the unidentified drone crashed near the village of Gubastovo and appears to have been targeting civilian infrastructure, but no damage or casualties were reported.
The governor went on to say that security services and other agencies are looking into the incident and that there is no danger to the public. According to previous media reports, emergency services and bomb squads had been dispatched to the area.
The incident has also been confirmed by Gazprom, with the management of the Voskresensk gas compressor station telling Russian media that the “drone fell near us but had no effect on our operation.”
Photos purportedly depicting the drone in question have begun to circulate on social media, but there has been no official confirmation of their authenticity.
The news comes after Russia’s Defense Ministry reported on Tuesday that Kiev attempted to use drones to attack civilian infrastructure in Krasnodar and the Republic of Adygea in the country’s south. It is worth noting that the UAVs were destroyed by Russian Armed Forces electronic warfare units. According to the ministry, both drones lost control and deviated from their flight paths, but no civilian infrastructure facilities were damaged.
