Defense intercepts 33 Ukrainian drones in four Russian regions

Moscow, Jun 23 (Prensa Latina) A total of 33 Ukrainian attack drones were shot down in four western Russian provinces today, the Defense Ministry reported.

In the statement published Sunday on its official Telegram page, it is specified that most of these unmanned aerial vehicles (28) were intercepted in Bryansk province; two were also shot down in Smolensk province; the same number in Lipetsk; and one in Tula province.

Aleksandr Bogomaz, the governor of Bryansk region, reported that an attempted terrorist attack was perpetrated against this territory on Sunday.

He added that, thanks to the professionalism of the anti-aircraft defense, these attacks did not cause any casualties or destruction, all drones were repelled and all targets were eliminated.

Russian territories bordering Ukraine, such as Belgorod, Bryansk, Kursk, and Voronezh, regularly report shell hits, drone raids, and other attacks from across the border, forcing the population to seek shelter elsewhere.

The province of Belgorod has been the hardest hit, with several incursions by sabotage groups from Ukraine in recent months and continuous attacks on border municipalities with the use of multiple rocket launchers, mortars, and drones.
