ST PETERSBURG, Russia: A drone crashed into a five-storey residential building in St Petersburg on Saturday and 100 people were evacuated with no casualties, Russia’s Rosgvardiya national guard said.
St Petersburg Governor Alexander Beglov said earlier that two buildings were damaged and residents had been evacuated after what he called an “incident” with no casualties.
Beglov did not explain the cause or nature of the incident, but local residents told Reuters that they had heard a strange sound followed by a blast and a fire on Saturday morning.
