Military airfield hit as a wave of Ukrainian drones strike deep inside Russia

Ukrainian drones hit targets deep inside Russia in a wave of overnight strikes, officials said Wednesday, in what appeared to be the biggest attack on the country since it launched a full-scale invasion of its neighbor more than 18 months ago.

Four military transport aircraft were reportedly damaged at an airfield near the border with Russia’s Baltic neighbors as strategic sites were set ablaze across the country — the latest signal that the war is increasingly playing out on Russian soil.
