However, one person has received a minor injury, which was due to the drone crashing into one of the apartment buildings, resulting in damage to windows and one person received a slight cut, according to Tula governor, Alexey Dyumin.

The attack had damaged the power system, due to which some parts of the region remained in dark over night, as per the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Russian backed head, Denis Pushilin.

“The situation is difficult,” said Pushilin on Telegram, as he added that work is underway to return the head and light for the citizens as soon as possible.
