War in Ukraine – 523rd day.Source: B92
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that the war is gradually returning to Russian territory, after three Ukrainian drones were shot down over Moscow.
During his visit to the city of Ivano-Frankivsk, Zelensky said that the war is gradually returning to the territory of Russia - to "its symbolic centers and military bases, and this is an inevitable, natural and absolutely just process."
The US does not encourage Ukrainian attacks outside of Ukraine
State Department spokesman Matthew Miller said regarding the Ukrainian drone attack on Moscow that the US does not encourage such actions by Ukraine, but does not dictate to Kyiv what to do.
"I would disagree with the interpretation of what 'symbolic centers' mean. We do not encourage or provide opportunities for strikes outside the borders of Ukraine. But, as we have said many times, it is up to Ukraine to decide how to wage war," Miller told reporters, RIA Novosti reports.
Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said on Sunday that the attack by Ukrainian drones was carried out at night, that the facades of two business towers in Moscow were slightly damaged, but that no one was injured.
