Recent reports suggest that two drones were used to cause damage to buildings in Krasnodar city in Russia. According to the Governor of Krasnodar, Veniamin Kondratyev, the drones were used to cause minor damage to windowpanes on two buildings. The Governor also said that the police were investigating the incident to retrieve the drones used in the incident.
The motive of the people behind the drones is still unknown. Authorities are also looking into the possible use of drones to conduct illicit activities such as arms trafficking and terrorism. Kondratyev urged citizens to be vigilant and to report any suspicious activities or objects spotted in the sky.
The incident serves as a reminder of the potential danger drones pose and the need for a stricter regulation of drone usage. Authorities in many countries are now rethinking their laws and regulations on drones as their usage has increased significantly since the outbreak of COVID-19. Such regulations should address safety, privacy and potential criminal activities.
