VOLODYMYR Zelensky has warned bloodstained Putin that war is coming to Russia.
In a three-pronged attack, kamikaze drones unleased chaos in the Russian capital – sparking a new wave of nuclear threats.
Undeterred Zelensky hit back and claimed the attacks were “inevitable, natural and absolutely fair process”.
The first of two drones sent to penetrate the capital’s much-vaunted air defences struck at 3.20am under the cloak of darkness.
It slammed into the 50-storey IQ Quarter Tower, one of the most prominent buildings in the business district called Moscow City.
Footage then captured the aftermath of the second drone attack, which struck the Oko-2 skyscraper at 4.10am.
Speaking from the western Ukrainian city of Ivano-Frankivsk, Zelensky publicly addressed Russia’s ongoing aggression.
He added: “Today is the 522nd day of the so-called ‘Special Military Operation’, which the Russian leadership thought would last a couple of weeks.

“Russian aggression has gone bankrupt on the battlefield.
“Ukraine is getting stronger.
“Gradually, the war is returning to the territory of Russia – to its symbolic centres and military bases, and this is an inevitable, natural and absolutely fair process.”
It comes as Russia’s defence ministry blamed Kyiv for Sunday’s attack.
The officials claimed the two drones had lost control when they were jammed by electronic warfare technology.
They also alleged that the other was shot down, while describing the incident as an “attempted terrorist attack”.
At the time of the strikes, footage showed two panic-struck women gasping as they watched an incoming drone grow closer, saying: “It flies so quick!”
Another video shot from the Presnenskaya Embankment showed one of the drones crashing into a building, as a woman shouts: “Mummy!”
Moscow mayor Sergei Sobyanin said the facades of two buildings were “slightly damaged”, despite the scenes of destruction.
A security guard was wounded in the attack while unconfirmed reports said a 21-year-old woman was also injured.
Multiple ambulances were at the scene in the heart of Moscow, close to the White House headquarters of the Russian government.
Ukraine has been taking bolder steps in recent weeks to bolster its counter-offensive, which continues to gather pace.
One of the buildings struck by the drones houses the Ministry of Economic Development and the Ministry of Industry and Trade.
The Ministry of Digital Development, Telecommunications and Mass Media’s office, part of Putin’s propaganda edifice, is also based here.
Government documentation from the ministries was strewn across the debris-littered street below after the attack.
A source said: “The glazing was shattered as a result of the blast at the level of fifth and sixth floors of the 50-story building on Presnenskaya embankment.”
The drone ambush even forced flights from major Moscow international airport Vnukovo, which is regularly used by the warlord and his goons, to be temporarily halted.
A source said: “Vnukovo airport is closed for arrivals and departures.
“Flights are being redirected to other airports. One flight is in the waiting area.”
It was later reopened as air defences got to work in the Odintsovo district.
The Kremlin bluntly threatened the use of nuclear weapons in wake of the strike, saying: “There is simply no other way out.”
Dmitry Medvedev – Putin’s deputy on the powerful Russian security council – warned: “Our Armed Forces, repelling the counteroffensive of the collective enemy, protect the citizens of Russia and our land.
“This is obvious to all decent people. But beyond that, they prevent world conflict.
“After all, if we imagine that the offensive of the [Ukrainians] with the support of NATO was successful, and they seized part of our land, then we would have to, by virtue of the rules of the decree of the President of Russia dated 06/02/2020, go for the use of nuclear weapons.
“There is simply no other way out.
“Therefore, our enemies must pray to our warriors. They do not allow the global nuclear fire to flare up.”
Although it is still in development, Putin’s puppets claim it could easily drown the UK under a giant radioactive tsunami.
Medvedev added: “Poseidon unmanned aerial vehicle joins the congratulations [for Navy Day] and recommends that the enemies of our country pray for the health of all Russian sailors.”
Reports of an intense drone attack on annexed Crimea also surfaced, although Ukraine have not yet commented on any strikes.
It comes as doctors have been left in despair as Russian troops fighting in Ukraine return home as “aggressive zombies”.
