Moscow and other Russian regions have been targeted by a barrage of Ukrainian drone attacks in recent days after Kyiv vowed earlier this summer to “return” the conflict to Russia.

On Wednesday, a Ukrainian drone strike killed three people in the Russian border region of Belgorod, the local governor said.

The same day, a drone crashed into a skyscraper in a Moscow business district and smashed a window, without causing any casualties, authorities said.

It was the sixth consecutive night the Moscow region had been targeted by drone strikes.
