(RockedBuzz via Reuters) – A non-residential building in the western Russian town of Kurchatov caught fire on Sunday after a Ukrainian drone strike, but emergency services put out the blaze and there were no fatalities, it said Roman Starovoit, governor of the Kursk region. .

In a post on the Telegram messaging app, Starovoit did not specify which building was affected. Ukrainian online site Babel quoted an unnamed source as saying that a drone struck a building belonging to the FSB security service.

Starovoit also accused a Ukrainian drone of damaging the facade of a building in Kurchatov on 1 September.

Kurchatov is home to one of Russia’s largest nuclear facilities, but there are no reports that he was involved in either accident.
