Russia intercepts 120 Ukrainian drones overnight – MOD

Dozens of UAVs were downed over the Black Sea, Crimea and Krasnodar Region, according to the Defense Ministry

The Russian military has repelled several large-scale Ukrainian drone raids, shooting down 114 UAVs overnight and intercepting six drone boats in the Black Sea, the Defense Ministry in Moscow has said.

Russian air defense units prevented an “attempt by the Kiev regime to carry out a terrorist attack using unmanned boats and airplane-type UAVs on Russian infrastructure,” the military said in a brief statement on Friday.

At least 70 drones were intercepted over the territory of the Crimean Peninsula, while the Black Sea fleet tracked down and destroyed six unmanned surface vehicles.

Another 43 drones were downed over the Krasnodar Region, while one UAV was intercepted in the Volgograd Region, the military added.
