Attack on Russian military building near Moscow

In Russia, a 53-year-old woman attempted an attack on a military building, as reported by Igor Sushko on the short messaging service X, formerly known as Twitter.

In the relevant post, Sushko writes: “Desperation in Russia: A 53-year-old woman threw a Molotov cocktail into the window of a conscription building in Podolsk, just outside of Moscow. The first pane of glass broke, but the burning bottle bounced off the second pane. She was immediately arrested at the scene.”

Sushko does not specify a precise motive for the attack, but it is conceivable that it could be related to a close relative of the woman being drafted into the war. Since Russian President Vladimir Putin’s first mobilization wave, there have been several such attacks on Russian military facilities.

These claims have not yet been independently verified or confirmed. Therefore, they should be viewed with caution. In war, it can be advantageous for conflict parties to deliberately spread misinformation to strengthen their own position or weaken that of the opponent.
