On Saturday, Russia said it shot down 20 unmanned Ukrainian drones near the Crimean peninsula where Kyiv has increased its attacks.

On Telegram, the defence ministry wrote, “Fourteen drones were downed by air defence systems and six more through electronic warfare”.

It stated that there were no injuries or property damage.

Kaluga Governor Vladislav Shapsha wrote on Telegram, “A drone was also intercepted in the Kaluga region, some 150 kilometres (about 95 miles) southwest of Moscow”.

Officials in Moscow announced Friday that they had destroyed a drone targeted towards the capital, the latest in a series of attacks on the city in recent days.

According to the defence ministry, a Ukrainian drone was destroyed over the western outskirts of Moscow, with no injuries or damage as a result of the incident.

In July, Ukrainian drone strikes on Crimea destroyed an armaments depot and damaged the bridge that connects the peninsula to Russia’s mainland.

Russia captured Crimea in 2014.

On Saturday, a police officer was murdered and 12 others were injured in a Russian strike in Ukraine’s southern Zaporizhzhia region.

According to local authorities, a man was also slain in the Kharkiv region.

Governor Sergiy Lysak said, “Three Iranian-made Shahed drones were destroyed over Zaporizhzhia, and a missile attack targeted Kryvyi Rig, the hometown of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky”.
