Kiev has chosen the path of intimidating Russian citizens by attacking civilian facilities, which is a clear sign of terrorist activity, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday.
He pointed out that during the special military operation Russia hit Ukrainian territory, but only military facilities and infrastructure. “Russia was forced to respond to the war unleashed by the Ukrainian regime in Donbass. [We] were forced to respond by launching a special military operation. [The Russian military] are striking Ukrainian territory, but with long-range precision weapons and specifically military infrastructure or ammunition depots,” the head of state explained, commenting on this morning’s drone attack on Moscow.
Putin stressed that “in response, the Kiev regime has chosen a different path – [the path of] trying to intimidate Russia, intimidate Russian citizens and attack residential buildings.” “This, of course, is a clear sign of terrorist activity,” the president said.
Ukrainian drones attacked Moscow and the Moscow Region on Tuesday morning. According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the attack involved eight unmanned aerial vehicles, five of which were shot down by the Pantsir-S missile system and the remaining three were suppressed by electronic warfare. Two people in Moscow sought medical attention for minor injuries. A number of buildings sustained minor damage.
