A drone strike at a military airfield in Pskov Oblast, Russia, destroyed four Il-76 aircraft on Aug. 30, Oblast Governor Mikhail Vedernikov and Russian state media claimed.

Vedernikov also announced that the airport will be closed for the remainder of Aug. 30. He said that flights will be canceled at the Pskov dual-use airport until possible damage to the runway has been assessed.

According to Russian media, two of the aircraft were "engulfed in flames."

No casualties were reported in the attack.

On Aug. 30, the airspace over Moscow and Tula Oblasts was also temporarily closed following reports of attempted drone strikes.
