Euronews Today with @yago.martinmartinez | Russia reacts to the drone attack on Moscow, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva sparks controversy in Brazil by supporting Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro and Serbia calls on the international community to act in Kosovo.
Good morning and welcome to a new edition of Euronews Hoy:
Moscow dawns with an unexpected drone attack. The Russian Defense Ministry has been quick to accuse Ukraine. She has responded, and an adviser to the presidency affirms that her country has nothing to do with it. All of this occurs on the same day that the Kremlin attacks kyiv for the 17th time in May. This time with 31 Iranian-made drones, leaving at least one fatality. Drone attacks are already more than usual in confrontations between Russia and Ukraine. Let’s remember that 4 weeks ago, Russia shot down another drone strike targeting the Kremlin.
But unlike that aggression, the one on Tuesday did cause damage. In these images, we can see the slight damage it has caused to some buildings in the capital. The Ministry of Defense assures that it neutralized the 8 drones thanks to the anti-aircraft defense systems. Although the attack on Moscow caused only two minor injuries, according to the authorities, this assault on the heavily protected capital, far from the front line, is likely to have a strong moral impact on Russia.
Meanwhile, violent clashes at protests in Kosovo leave 75 injured. The Serbian president has asked the international community to use his influence so that the Kosovar government removes the mayors of the municipalities in the north of the country, where the Serbs are in the majority and whose authority they do not recognize. Brazil and Venezuela strengthen ties in a bilateral meeting between the two presidents, which has sparked the controversy against President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva. And China launches into space the first mission manned by a civilian to launch its space station. All this and much more in today’s news.
