The Russian Defense Ministry stated this.

Thus, according to its data, air defense destroyed two UAVs over the territory of Belgorod and Rostov regions, six over the Krasnodar region, and three drones over the Astrakhan region. The Russians also allegedly intercepted one drone over the territory of Bryansk and Tula regions, and four over the temporarily occupied Crimea.

In addition, the Russian agency says that its firepower in the Black Sea destroyed two unmanned boats that were allegedly heading toward the Crimean peninsula.

The day before, Crimean Wind reported on explosions, in particular in Balaklava, Sevastopol, and Kerch. According to them, the first explosion occurred in Balaklava near the thermal power plant after 1:00 a.m.

The head of the occupation administration of Sevastopol, Mikhail Razvozhayev, said that a crewless boat was allegedly destroyed in the area of Striletska bay. 

“The loud sounds heard in the area of Striletska bay were our fleet destroying a crewless boat on an outer raid,” Razvozhayev said.

In addition, the governor of the Belgorod region, Vyacheslav Gladkov, said that the village of Prokhorovka in the region was attacked by three airplane-type UAVs. According to him, the first drone fell on a private residential building, causing it and nearby buildings to be destroyed.

The second drone, according to the governor, fell and detonated next to a private residence, smashing windows, damaging the facade, fence and outbuildings.

Gladkov added that a third drone allegedly attacked the church, damaging the roof and facade.

  • The Russian Defense Ministry says that on the night of June 7, Russian air defense forces destroyed 28 UAVs over three regions, as well as over occupied Crimea and the Sea of Azov. Russian media reported that two radars in Crimea were damaged.
