The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, drew attention to statements by the White House that the United States does not want the conflict in Ukraine to escalate into a “war against the West” due to Ukrainian attacks on Russian territory.
“Ridiculous,” she wrote today, May 31, in her Telegram channel. “They themselves broke the house, they themselves doused it with gasoline, set it on fire themselves, they themselves planted firecrackers and firewood, and now they are declaring “unwillingness to escalate.” The “War of the West” in a hybrid format has been going on for a long time.”
As reported EADaily, May 30, Moscow and the Moscow region were subjected to a massive attack by Ukrainian drones, most of which were intercepted by air defense systems over the Odintsovo, Krasnogorsk and Istra regions of the Moscow region. Several drones reached the territory of the capital, three of them hit residential multi-storey buildings in the south of Moscow.
According to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, eight devices were involved in the attack, five of them were shot down, the remaining three were suppressed by electronic warfare. Two people asked for medical help in Moscow, they did not need hospitalization. A number of buildings received minor damage.
Telegram channels wrote that up to 30 UAVs were sent to Moscow.
