Russian airports reopened

Operations suspended last night due to attacks by Ukrainian drones

Moscow's airports reopened in these hours, after being targeted last night by Ukrainian military drones. The Russian federal air transport agency, "Rosaviatsia", announced that the two main airports in Moscow, Vnukovo and Sheremetevo, as well as that of Zhukovksy, which is located in the hinterland of the capital, have resumed normal operations, after a temporary suspension of traffic.

The Russian Defense Ministry informed that the temporary stop on take-offs and landings had been decided after the shooting down of three Ukrainian drones headed towards the Russian capital. Last night, according to a report by "Rosaviatsia", at least 50 flights departed late from Moscow airports: 17 in Vnukovo (one cancelled), six in Domodedovo (two flights cancelled), 23 in Sheremetyevo, three cancelled in Zhukovsky.

Some residents living in the Moscow hinterland heard the sound of an explosion, followed by a large fire. The mayor of Moscow, Sergei Sobyanin, explained that a civilian building would be damaged following the crash of debris from a downed drone in the Istrinsky district, while another unmanned aircraft, flying towards Moscow, would be destroyed in the region of Tver, near Zavidovo.
