What Do Russians Think of the Drone Attack on Moscow?

A drone attack targeting Moscow this week was by far the largest wave launched against Russia since it invaded Ukraine last year. Although the Russian authorities said eight unmanned aerial vehicles were involved in this latest attack, media sources close to the state security services put the figure at more than 30 drones.

We spoke to people in Moscow to find out what they thought about the attack.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
