Putin rocked as dozens of Ukrainian drones, cluster bombs rain down on Russia

Ukraine: Special forces destroy fighting vehicles

Dozens of Ukrainian drones attacked three Russian regions overnight, according to Russia’s Ministry of Defense.

Moscow claimed its air defences shot down 31 of the drones over the Belgorod, Bryansk and Kursk regions.

Writing on Telegram, it said: “On the night of October 4, the demands of the Kyiv regime were suppressed and terrorist attacks were carried out on objects on the territory of the Russian Federation.

“31 Ukrainian unmanned aircraft of the airplane type were intercepted and destroyed by air defence units on duty over the territory of Belgorod, Bryansk and Kursk regions.”

Although Russia claims to have shot down the drones, damage has been reported in the Belgorod region bordering Ukraine, according to regional governor Vyacheslav Gladkov.

He said: “An administrative building in Belgorod, a house in the village of Shishino, Belgorod district, and three cars were damaged.”

The state-run TASS News Agency claimed 19 drones were shot down over the region.

In addition, the regional governor of Bryansk, Alexander Bogomaz, claimed Ukraine’s forces fired cluster munitions into the region.

He said no one was injured but several houses were damaged. The claims of these overnight attacks have not been verified.

Russian officials in bordering regions have long accused Ukraine of indiscriminate shelling, which Kyiv denies.

Ukraine has promised only to use the controversial munitions to dislodge enemy soldiers – their use is banned by more than 100 countries but not the US, Ukraine or Russia.

Both sides have used cluster munitions throughout the war.
