Baza, Shot: drone crashes near Gazprom facility in Moscow region

A drone crashed near a Gazprom booster station in the Moscow region of Russia, as per Telegram channels Baza, Shot, and Mash.

It is reported that the crash caused no explosion. The crash site is located in Gubastovo near Kolomna. Bomb technicians and emergency services are on the way to the location.

Shot says that the drone in question is UJ-22 Airborne, a strike UAV manufactured by Ukrjet.

“Our source says that apparently the drone quickly lost altitude, possibly due to running out of fuel, and damaged its wing against the trees, which caused it to fall,” Shot says.

The crash has been confirmed by Andrey Vorobyev, the local governor.

“This happened near the locality of Gubastovo. The drone likely targeted a civilian facility, but did not damage it. No victims either,” he wrote.
