The suburbs of Russia's capital city of Moscow were allegedly targeted with drones early on June 21, according to reports in Russian media.

Local residents reported hearing a "loud sound" at around 5 a.m. Eyewitnesses also observed an explosion in the sky over the village of Lukino in New Moscow.

It was later confirmed that a drone had fallen in the nearby Pahra River area. No casualties were reported as a result of the attack.

In addition, two drones reportedly crashed near the village of Kalininets in the Naro-Fominsky District of Moscow Oblast. Local residents heard two explosions approximately five minutes apart around 5:30 a.m. Law enforcement authorities have cordoned off the area where the debris fell.
