Putin orders Ukraine border tightening as drones hit Russia

March 01, 2023

The drone attacks caused no casualties but provoked a security stir as the war with Kyiv stretched into its second year last week. ADVERTISEMENTThe Russian Defense Ministry said that Ukraine used drones to attack facilities in the Krasnodar region and neighboring Adygea. In December, the Russian military said Ukraine used drones to hit two bases for long-range bombers deep inside Russian territory. It wasn’t immediately clear whether this was connected to the alleged uptick in drone attacks in Russia’s south. Speaking at Russia’s main security agency, the FSB, Putin urged the service to tighten security on the Ukraine border.
