Russian Defense Downs 12 Ukrainian Drones Over 5 Regions

The Russian Ministry of Defense announced Thursday that 12 Ukrainian drones were shot down over five Russian regions.

A statement issued by the ministry said that Russian air defense systems destroyed five drones over the Bryansk region, one over the Kursk region, one over the Belgorod region, two over the Rostov region, and three over the Krasnodar region.

In recent months, Ukraine has intensified the frequency of attacks using drones on Russian regions.

There have been conflicting reports between Russia and Ukraine about the extent of losses suffered by both sides of the crisis. Each party claims to have inflicted severe losses on the other, without being able to independently verify the accuracy of this information due to the ongoing fighting.
