Drones damaged an observation tower of the Russian Security Service (FSB) in Russia’s Bryansk Oblast bordering Ukraine, an opposition Russian outlet ASTRA wrote on Telegram on Feb. 28.

According to the outlet, the incident happened in the morning of Feb. 27.

Three drones attacked a technical surveillance point of the FSB border guard department in the Sevsk District. The tower was disabled as a result.

Bryansk Oblast Governor Aleksandr Bogomaz hasn't reported that attack, but he has reported another one: "Russian forces downed a Ukrainian drone in Surazh District. There are no victims and no damage. Police arrived at the scene,” he wrote.

Earlier, a drone attack on an oil depot in the Russian town of Tuapse at the Black Sea coastline was reported.

Then the detection of an unidentified aircraft in Russian airspace caused the Russian authorities to trigger a security plan that closed down the main airport in St. Petersburg for about an hour.

Besides, the broadcasting of TV channels and radio stations in Russia were apparently hacked, and interrupted by a fake message with air raid sirens and a voice warning of the "threat of a missile attack."
