Russia said Sunday it had downed Ukrainian drones over four regions, including Moscow, as well as two Ukrainian missiles over the Azov Sea headed for Russia.
Moscow said the drone attacks hit border regions and regions close to Moscow, the day after Kyiv reported what it called the largest drone attack on Ukraine since Moscow launched its offensive in February last year.
“Air defence destroyed four Ukranian drones over the territory of the Bryansk, Smolensk and Tula regions,” Russia’s defence ministry said in a statement.
Earlier Sunday, Russia also reported some drones were shot down over the Moscow region.
The Russian army said it had also downed two Ukrainian missiles headed for Russia over the Azov Sea, between the two countries.
“Russian air defence located and destroyed two Ukrainian missiles in the air over the water area of the Azov Sea,” Russia’s defence ministry said in a statement.
Ukraine, meanwhile, said its air defence had downed eight out of nine drones over the country on Sunday.
