Russia has once again reported a drone attack on the temporarily occupied Crimea. This time, it is claimed that a single drone was involved and that it was allegedly shot down, according to the Telegram channel of the so-called "head" of Crimea, Sergei Aksyonov.

"During the night, an enemy UAV was suppressed and brought down in the area of northern Crimea using electronic warfare means," the so-called "head" of Crimea wrote.

Aksyonov stated that there were no reported casualties or damages resulting from the incident.

Local media even published a photo of the alleged downed drone, but unfortunately, its authenticity cannot be verified.
