Russia downs drones for second day as Zelenskyy warns of war on Russian soil

Russian officials have fired on Ukrainian drones for the second day in a row after President Volodymyr Zelenskyy warned war would return to "Russian soil".

It marks the second drone attack on Russian soil in just as many days, with the Kremlin confirming they downed two Ukrainian offensives headed for Moscow.

Although the drones did not reach the capital, Russian air defence systems picked up on the robotics and shot them down before they reached the Kremlin.

As a result of an increase in Ukrainian activity on Putin's turf., Russia has suffered disrupted flights at two of its international airports.

One of the two drones was shot down in the Kaluga region of Moscow in the southwest while another was blasted out the skies near a ring road.

No casualties or injuries were immediately reported after the downing of the two drones, although a number of flights were diverted from two Russian airports.

In total, 10 flights were rearranged and impacted by the sudden appearance of the two drones, which Ukraine has not confirmed or denied as their military items.

Air Force spokesman Yurii Ihnat said: "This cannot but please us because people in Moscow thought they were safe. Now, the war affects each and every Russian.

"We now see that ‘something’ happens in Moscow on a regular basis."

The appearance of the drones comes just days after Ukrainian president Zelenskyy warned the war in Ukraine would soon see activity in Russia.

The Daily Star previously reported Zelenskyy's stern comments, where he confirmed the tide of war was shifting and activity in Russia would be on the rise, with 25 drones recently flown into Russian airspace.

He said: "Gradually, the war is returning to the territory of Russia — to its symbolic centres and military bases, and this is an inevitable, natural and absolutely fair process."
