On the night of July 14, there was an explosion from a drone crash in the town of Kurchatov, Kursk Region. An airplane-type kamikaze drone fell about 4 kilometers from the Kursk nuclear power plant, notes the Shot telegram channel. According to preliminary data, it was shot down by an air defense system, and the wreckage of the drone crashed into the Kursk Reservoir.
“Fortunately, none of the residents were injured. Critically important facilities were not damaged as a result of the drone’s crash and its subsequent detonation”, Kursk Region Governor Roman Starovoit said in his Telegram channel.
According to his data, an apartment building was partially damaged – its facade was cut and glazing was blown out. The blast wave blew out the windows in eight apartments of the apartment building, Shot specified. The area where the downed drone fell was cordoned off almost immediately by the military and local residents were asked to return to their homes, eyewitnesses of the incident told Beware of the News.
Also this night in a few kilometers from Voronezh air defense means shot down three drones, writes the telegram channel Baza. “There are no casualties, injuries, destruction. I keep the situation under control”, – said the Governor of the Voronezh region Aleksander Gusev.
Kamikaze drones were shot down in the area of the state farm “Maslovsky”, and their target could be the military airfield “Baltimore”, which had previously tried to attack the drones, writes Shot.
The day before, a Ukrainian drone attacked a factory producing dry rations, canned food and dairy products for the Russian army in Starodub in the Bryansk region. As a result of the attack, the slate roof of the workshop was damaged, but there were no casualties.
Ukraine continues to launch drone strikes against military facilities in Russia. Before the start of the counteroffensive in June, the Ukrainian armed forces blew up an oil depot in Sevastopol and also attacked oil refineries in Rostov Region and Krasnodar Krai. The refineries in Krasnodar Krai were raided twice.
Over the past two months, Ukrainian drones have also hit a military training ground near Voronezh, attempted to attack the Taman division in the Moscow region and a military unit in Kubinka. In addition, raids were carried out on an airfield and an oil depot near Kursk, as well as an electrical substation in Kursk Region.
The most massive drone attack occurred a few days before Ukraine’s counteroffensive – on May 30, several dozen drones raided the Moscow suburbs and Moscow. At that time, several residential buildings in New Moscow and in the southwest of the capital were damaged and two people were injured.
