0 3

Russian air defense systems successfully shot down a total of four missiles over regions bordering Ukraine, according to Russian officials. One missile was intercepted over the annexed Crimean peninsula, while three others were neutralized over Russia’s Rostov and Bryansk regions, both of which share a border with Ukraine.

Governor Sergei Aksyonov, installed by Russia in Crimea, reported that a cruise missile was shot down near the city of Kerch on the Crimean peninsula. Fortunately, the interception caused no harm or casualties. Aksyonov did not disclose the origin of the launched missile. It is noteworthy that Crimea, although annexed by Russia in 2014, remains internationally recognized as part of Ukraine.

Local authorities stated that traffic movement on the Crimean Bridge, connecting the peninsula to the Russian mainland, resumed after a temporary suspension. However, no official explanation was provided for the temporary halt in traffic.

Meanwhile, in the Rostov region, Governor Vasily Golubev confirmed through the Telegram messaging app that a Ukrainian missile was successfully intercepted by Russian air defenses. Fortunately, no casualties were reported, but the debris caused partial damage to the roofs of a few buildings in the area.

Similarly, Governor Alexander Bogomaz of Bryansk reported on Telegram that the Russian military had intercepted two Ukrainian missiles. One of the missiles resulted in the complete destruction of a sawmill upon impact.

It is worth noting that Moscow frequently accuses Ukraine of launching attacks against targets within Russian territory, whereas Kyiv vehemently denies these allegations and asserts that it is engaged in a defensive war on its own soil.

As tensions continue to rise between Russia and Ukraine, these incidents underscore the heightened military activities in the region and the fragile state of the ongoing conflict. The international community closely watches the situation, hoping for a peaceful resolution to avoid further escalation and potential loss of life.
