Is the war coming home to Russia?

On Tuesday (30 May), several drones damaged buildings in Moscow in by far the largest attack on the Russian capital since the war in Ukraine began. Kyiv denies carrying out the strikes – at least one of which affected Rublyovka, a wealthy suburb home to many of Russia's elite, and close to where Putin has an official residence.


Megan Gibson and Katie Stallard discuss the strategy behind the attacks, how they might be viewed by Ukraine’s allies, and whether further strikes on Russian territory are likely. The discussion then moves to Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s re-election as Turkish president and what it could mean for Sweden’s bid to join Nato.
