Russian defense forces intercept 36 Ukrainian drones in three regions

Moscow, Jul 1 (Prensa Latina) The Russian air defense forces on Monday shot down 36 drones launched by Ukraine over the country's southwest airspace, the Defense Ministry announced on its Telegram channel.

The military institution informed that 18 unmanned aerial vehicles were intercepted over the Bryansk region, nine in Kursk, and nine in Belgorod.

In the last few months, Ukraine has focused its drone attacks on Russian refineries, fuel depots, and other oil industry facilities, mainly in the border provinces, in addition to remote areas such as Nizhny Novgorod, Bashkortostan, or Tatarstan.

The Russian territories bordering Ukraine, such as Belgorod, Bryansk, Kursk, Voronezh, and the Crimean Peninsula, regularly report shelling, drone strikes, and other attacks from across the border, forcing the population to seek refuge elsewhere.

The region of Belgorod has been targeted by some of the worst attacks, with several incursions by sabotage groups from Ukraine in the last few months and continuous attacks on border communities using multiple rocket launchers, mortars, and drones.
