The Russian governor claims that ‘air targets’ have been destroyed over the Gulf of Finland

The governor of Russia’s Leningrad Oblast, Alexander Drozdenko, claimed on March 2 that air defenses had shot down “air targets” over the waters and coast of the Gulf of Finland.

Drozdenko’s claims came after Russian state media wrote about explosions near the Bronka port in St. Petersburg.

There were no casualties or damage in St. Petersburg’s Lomonosovsky district, the governor claimed on Telegram.

Russia’s Federal Air Transport Agency said restrictions had been imposed on aircraft departures and arrivals at Pulkovo Airport from around 7pm to 8pm local time.

In recent weeks and months, Russian authorities reported an increasing number of drone attacks on Belgorod, Bryansk, Oryol and Leningrad Oblasts, as well as other regions.

Ukrainian officials generally do not comment on these claims, which cannot be independently verified.
