ISTANBUL (AA) - Russia on Thursday said it thwarted drone attacks conducted by Ukraine on the Moscow and Kaluga regions, as well as Crimea, which Russia illegally annexed in 2014.

“Tonight, over the territory of the Kaluga and Moscow regions, as well as the city of Sevastopol, attempts by the Kyiv regime to carry out terrorist attacks by unmanned aerial vehicles were thwarted,” said a statement by the Russian Defense Ministry.

Two drones flying toward the capital Moscow were destroyed by Russian air defense systems over Kaluga’s Maloyaroslavetsky district and Moscow’s Odintsovsky district, the statement added.

“Near the city of Sevastopol, two UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) were hit by on-duty air defense systems, another nine were suppressed by electronic warfare and, having not reached the target, crashed in the Black Sea,” the statement further said.

It added that no casualties or damages were reported.

Ukrainian authorities have not yet commented on the attack, and independent verification of Russia’s claim is difficult due to the ongoing war.
