Russian air defenses thwarted “several drones” trying to reach Moscow, Mayor Sergey Sobyanin said Tuesday. He said the facade of the building’s 21st floor was damaged, that it was the same skyscraper hit on Sunday and that there was no information on casualties.
UNESCO has verified damage to 274 locations in Ukraine, including religious sites, museums, monuments and libraries, during nearly a year and a half of war, the U.N. organization said.
Russian drones struck Kharkiv and destroyed two floors of a dormitory, the mayor of the northeastern city, Ukraine’s second-largest, said overnight.
Russia shot down a drone in the Crimean district of Sevastopol, Kremlin-appointed governor Mikhail Razvozhaev announced on Telegram. Residents reported hearing an explosion.
Denis Pushilin, leader of occupied Donetsk in eastern Ukraine, said Tuesday on Telegram that seven people were injured and two were killed in shelling attacks. One of the people injured was a teenage girl. Pushilin had said Monday that Ukrainian forces killed two and injured six in strikes that day.
The chief of the General Staff of Russia’s armed forces, Gen. Valery Gerasimov, visited troops in Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhia region, which is partly controlled by Russian forces, the Defense Ministry said. In recent days, Ukrainian forces have pressed a counteroffensive push to reclaim territory in the southeastern region, officials said.
Russian warships destroyed three Ukrainian naval drones in the Black Sea, foiling an attempted late-night attack on the two ships, the Russian Defense Ministry said early Tuesday. The Washington Post could not independently verify the claim.
Belarusian helicopters violated Polish airspace during a training exercise Tuesday, Poland’s Defense Ministry said in a statement. The Belarusian Defense Ministry refuted the claims, calling them “far-fetched.” Polish Defense Minister Mariusz Błaszczak ordered more soldiers along the border, the ministry said.

The sanctioned Russian citizens include three judges, two prosecutors and an expert witness.

Ukraine’s foreign minister said he discussed the possibility of using Croatian ports to export grain during a meeting Monday with his Croatian counterpart. Russia’s withdrawal from a U.N.-backed grain deal last month has blocked the flow of Ukrainian grain exports via Black Sea routes.
For these soldiers, Ukraine has been at war for half their lives: With almost everyone mobilized, it’s not unusual to see graying men working checkpoints, but much of the conflict has fallen mostly on the young, Fredrick Kunkle and Serhii Korolchuk report from Ukraine.
“For most of the youngest soldiers, the war with Russia in the eastern Donbas region seemed far away when they were growing up — a kind of simmering background music that occasionally touched relatives or friends,” they write. “Now, however, they are on the front, fighting a powerful enemy that can, and does, strike anywhere.”….
