Details: The meeting was held against a backdrop of news about attacks on airfields inside of Russia, presumably made by Ukrainian drones.

The incidents took place not only in Russian regions bordering Ukraine, but also in those located relatively far from the border - in the Ryazan and Saratov oblasts of the Russian Federation.
