There has been no official response from Ukrainian authorities to this latest incident.

According to the Russian state news agency RIA, the fire reached an area of 2,700 square metres before being controlled and extinguished.

Moscow region prosecutor’s office has claimed the initial cause of the incident was a violation of fire safety standards while welding, as reported by the TASS official news agency.

On July 30 and August 1, a high-rise Moscow City office block, which includes multiple Russian ministries, was damaged by two drone attacks targeting the same site.

Russia has blamed the Ukrainian military for these strikes. On August 11, it was claimed that Moscow’s air defence intercepted an attack drone.

According to Moscow Mayor Sergey Sobyanin, the drone’s debris landed near the Karamyshevskaya embankment in the western section of the city.
