A video captured one of the unmanned vehicles hitting a high-rise building and exploding into a ball of fire.
Igor Sushko, who shared the video on Twitter, wrote: “Moscow under attack: A drone can be heard flying into a building resulting in a massive explosion this morning.
“‘Moscow City’ is a very high-end business district just 2.8 miles from the Kremlin. Multiple drone strikes reported.”
As the sun rose, pictures a large presence of emergency services in the area, which was cordoned off while investigators looked at the damages created.
