A drone struck the center of Kursk, a city in southwestern Russia, on Sunday morning. There is no information about the victims and damage caused by the attack, added Ukrainska Pravda. On the same day, a second attack occurred – a drone hit an oil refinery near the airport in Kursk.
The first attack, which occurred in the heart of Kursk, has left the community on edge. Unfortunately, there is limited information available about the extent of the damage and any potential victims. Ukrainian news outlet Ukrainska Pravda reported on the incidents, shedding light on the alarming events. The lack of specific details only adds to the mystery surrounding these attacks.
Governor Roman Starovoit of the Kursk region took to social media to confirm that one of the administrative buildings in the city had indeed been struck by an unidentified drone. He indicated that the attack had resulted in “slight damage” to the building. However, this raises further questions about the motivation behind the drone attack and whether it was a targeted strike or part of a larger operation.
He then added that as a result of this attack, “the roof was slightly damaged.” According to Ukrainska Pravda's source, the operation was carried out by the Ukrainian military intelligence service Kursk.
Kursk Oblast borders the north-eastern regions of Ukraine. On August 27, the airport in Kursk was attacked by combat drones. Later, a social media channel called Operatywniy ZSU, associated with the Ukrainian army, reported that the attack was the work of the Ukrainian services and that as a result of this operation, a total of five military aircraft were damaged.
The second drone attack, occurring on the same day as the first, targeted an oil refinery near Kursk's airport. The implications of this second attack raise concerns about potential economic repercussions for the region. The airport, which was previously targeted on August 27th by combat drones, suffered damage to five military aircraft during that incident. It was later revealed that the August attack was attributed to Ukrainian services, adding to the ongoing tensions between the two nations.
