GPS receivers in the proximity of the Moscow Kremlin show the wrong coordinates. Such security measures are taken in order to avoid drone technology. 

This was noted by Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny. In an interview with the online blog “vdud”, he said – “They’ve changed the GPS signal around the Kremlin. When you drive around the square, the GPS shows that you are in Vnukovo (suburb). This must be the only way to deal with drones. They can be very difficult to knock down.”
