Details: In addition, Putin cynically stated that Russia is being provoked to "respond in kind", and also lied once again, saying that the Russian military was only carrying out "high-precision strikes on military infrastructure".

Background: 

  • According to various reports, 25 to 32 drones attacked Moscow on the night of 29-30 May, damaging at least two multi-storey residential buildings, and most of the drones were reportedly shot down near the Russian capital.
  • Based on a published list of drone crash sites in Moscow Oblast, one of the drones was allegedly shot down near the residence of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
