social media

One person was killed and three others were injured Monday in a Ukrainian drone attack on a gas station in Russia's Oryol region, local officials said Monday.

"A drone fell this morning on the territory of a gas station in the town of Livny," said Oryol region Governor Andrei Klychkov, adding that the facade of a government building was damaged.

Another drone attacked the area after emergency services responded to the scene, Klychkov said.

"According to initial information, the driver of a fire engine was unfortunately killed," he said, adding that three other emergency responders were injured.

The Russian Defense Ministry said Monday it had downed a dozen Ukrainian drones overnight, including six over the Oryol region, whose capital city lies around 170 kilometers from the border with Ukraine.

… 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.
