Ukraine has been sending drones and missiles into Russia almost daily since it launched its counteroffensive in early June 2023.
Russian air defenses shot down six Ukrainian drones overnight over the Belgorod, Voronezh, and Lipetsk regions, the Russian Defense Ministry's press service said on Monday.

"Last night, an attempt by the Kiev regime to carry out terrorist attacks with aircraft-type drones against facilities on the territory of the Russian Federation was foiled. On-duty air defenses destroyed one UAV over the territory of the Belgorod region, two UAVs over the territory of the Voronezh region, as well as three UAVs over the territory of the Lipetsk region," the statement said.
