“Our sources say the drone probably crashed because it suddenly lost altitude (probably ran out of fuel), got stuck in trees and damaged its wing,” the report said.

On the same day, an incident was reported in another Russian town, Tuapse in Krasnodar Krai. On February 28, two of his unknown drones exploded at an oil depot. The explosion caused a large fire at the facility.
