Two explosions at majorRussian military bases, including the Dyagilevo base near Ryazan just 150 miles fromMoscow, mean the war inUkrainehas come rightto Vladimir Putin’s doorstep.

The explosions—which were unmanned drone strikes, a senior Ukrainian official toldThe New York Times—suggest Ukraine wanted to strike fear right in the heart of Russia.

The second explosion struck the Engels-2 base, from which Tu-95 bombers have been pummeling Ukraine’s infrastructure over the last month.

Engels and Ryazan are around 300 to 450 miles from the Ukrainian border, which is beyond the range of any known missiles in Ukraine’s possession, theTimesreported.

A fuel truck explosion at the base near Ryazan killed at least three and wounded half a dozen, and damaged Tu-95 bombers and Tu-22M long-range missile bombers, which have nuclear capability.
