Russia's Armed Forces destroyed four Ukrainian unmanned aerial vehicles in the past day, including a drone that was flying towards Sevastopol over the Black Sea, Russian Defense Ministry Spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov said on Saturday.
"Three Ukrainian unmanned aerial vehicles were destroyed over Balakleya, Kiev and Chernigov in the past day. In addition, a Ukrainian drone flying over the Black Sea towards Sevastopol was also downed," he said.
According to Konashenkov, Russia's air defenses also downed a Ukrainian Mil Mi-24 helicopter over the Staraya Basan settlement.
Russia's Aerospace Forces destroyed 91 Ukrainian military facilities in the past 24 hours, including two command posts and two electronic warfare stations, Konashenkov said.
"Tactical and army aircraft targeted 91 Ukrainian military facilities in the past 24 hours, including two command posts, 11 field ammunition depots, two electronic warfare stations, as well as 20 strongholds of the Ukrainian Armed Forces and 52 military equipment storage sites," he specified.
On February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a special military operation based on a request from the heads of the Donbass republics. The Russian leader stressed that Moscow had no plans to occupy Ukrainian territories and the goal was to demilitarize and denazify the country. Russia's Defense Ministry stressed that the Russian Armed Forces were not delivering strikes against Ukrainian cities. The ministry emphasized that the Ukrainian military infrastructure was being destroyed by precision weapons and there was no threat to civilians.
