A senior Russian politician said three drones shot down over Moscow on Tuesday had been downed over the Russian capital's exclusive Rublyovka suburb, where President Vladimir Putin has an official residence.

The Russian defence ministry earlier said air defences had destroyed all eight of the drones used in the attack, which it blamed on Ukraine. Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said two people were injured in the attack but no deaths were reported.

In a post on Telegram, Alexander Khinshtein, a prominent member of Russia's parliament from the ruling United Russia bloc, said three drones had been downed over three Rublyovka villages, one of which is located just 10 minutes' drive from Putin's residence at Novo-Ogaryovo.

Russia's Investigative Committee, which has begun probing the drone strike, confirmed that drones were downed over the Odintsovsky district, which includes Rublyovka.

Rublyovka, a patchwork of elite gated communities in the forests west of Moscow that once boasted some of the world's highest real estate prices, is home to much of Russia's political, business and cultural elite.

Apart from Putin, former president Dmitry Medvedev and Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin have been reported to own homes in Rublyovka, alongside many of Russia's richest business figures.

A Ukrainian presidential aide denied Kyiv was directly involved in Tuesday's drone attack on Moscow but said Ukraine was enjoying watching the events and predicted an increase in such attacks.
