Russian military authorities report that their anti-aircraft defenses shot down two Ukrainian drones last night in Kaluga and Tver, two regions bordering Moscow, confirmed Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu.
"The Russian anti-aircraft defenses that were on duty shot down the drones over the territories of the Kaluga and Tver regions," the military statement said.
In this way, he adds, the attempt of the "Kyiv regime to carry out a terrorist attack was rejected."
Simultaneously, Moscow's main airports announced the cancellation and postponement of several flights, something common in the event of drone attacks on the capital or nearby territories.
On the other hand, the Russian Defense Minister today showed the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, three Russian strategic aircraft and Kinzhal hypersonic missiles deployed on a MiG-31I fighter.
The demonstration took place during the North Korean leader's visit to the Knevichi airfield in Primorye, in the Russian Far East, according to the Russian Ministry of Defense.
Kim arrived at Knevichi in his official car, along with the rest of the delegation, and was received at the airfield by the honor guard of the Preobrazhensky Regiment.
In Knevichi, the North Korean leader was shown the Tu-160 strategic missile-carrying supersonic bomber, the Tu-95MS turboprop strategic bomber and the Tu-22M3 long-range heavy bomber.
The three aircraft are part of the air component of Russia's strategic nuclear forces, Defense recalls in a statement.
The Russian military also showed Kim the MiG-31I fighter equipped with a Kinzhal hypersonic missile and its command system.
According to Moscow, it is an air complex "without analogues in the world" that has shown its effectiveness.
