Three Russian technical servicemen were killed when the drone’s wreckage fell on them.
The Guardian has not confirmed that the drone was indeed shot down or whether it had hit its intended target.
Reports claimed that blasts were heard at Russia’s Engels Airbase hundreds of miles from the frontlines in Ukraine. The RBC-Ukraine news agency reported two explosions.
Near Saratov, the airbase is located 730km (450 mi) southeast of Moscow and more than 600 km (370 mi) from Ukraine. The airbase was also attacked earlier in the month.
