The Russian Defense Ministry confirmed that an incoming Ukrainian drone was “destroyed” over Belgorod Region around 11:50pm on Wednesday, but did not mention any damage on the ground in its brief statement.

Amid the ongoing hostilities between Moscow and Kiev, Belgorod Region and other areas bordering Ukraine have been the target of intense Ukrainian artillery attacks and drone raids, which have claimed numerous civilian lives. Russian officials have also accused Ukraine of plotting acts of sabotage targeting major infrastructure sites, including nuclear power plants.

Kiev has stepped up assaults on Russian territory in recent months, as the ground counteroffensive of Ukrainian forces launched in early June failed to yield any significant victories.
