Russia says it thwarted Kyiv drone attack following aerial assault against Ukraine

By The Associated Press

Russian officials say 32 Ukrainian drones were detected over Russia, a day after Moscow’s 18-hour aerial barrage of Ukraine killed at least 30 civilians. Drones were seen in the skies over Russia’s Moscow, Bryansk, Oryol, and Kursk regions, the country’s defense ministry said in a statement. It did not report any casualties and said that all of the drones had been destroyed by air defenses. Moscow’s forces launched 122 missiles and dozens of drones across Ukraine Friday, an onslaught described by one air force official as the biggest aerial barrage of the war.
