Russia destroys 2 Ukrainian drones over Belgorod

Russia’s military said Tuesday it shot down two Ukrainian drones over the Belgorod region, the latest intercept in the daily uncrewed aerial attacks by the two countries.

Several hours before the Belgorod attack, the Russian defense ministry also reported destroying six Ukrainian drones over the Black Sea.

Ukraine’s military said Monday it shot down an advanced Russian reconnaissance drone over the Black Sea.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said in his nightly video address that he met with military and government officials to discuss the need to boost domestic production of drones to defend against Russia’s invasion.

“Our defense industry must produce precisely what the war requires in the amount that is necessary and as timely as needed,” Zelenskyy said. “Obviously, drones will be one of the decisive factors for victory in this war, and it should be a Ukrainian factor, Ukrainian drones, Ukrainian victory, which means we need more and more efficient Ukrainian drones.”
