Russian Air Defenses Shot Down 50 Ukrainian Drones Over Seven Regions (Videos)

Russian air defenses intercepted dozens of suicide drones over seven different Russian region early on April 20, repelling one of the largest attacks by the Kiev regime on the territory of the country this year.

In a statement, the Russian Ministry of Defense said that a total of 50 Ukrainian drones were shot down over Russian territory.

26 were downed over the Belgorod region, ten over the Bryansk region, eight over the Kursk region, two over the Tula region and one each over the regions of Smolensk, Ryazan, Kaluga and Moscow, the ministry said, without providing any further details.

Losses were only reported in Kaluga, where governor Vladislav Shapsha reported an insignificant damage to an energy infrastructure by a drone exploding in the Maloyaroslavets District.

“Tonight, in the Maloyaroslavets District, as a result of a drone exploding near an electric substation, energy infrastructure was insignificantly damaged. There are no casualties. The emergency services are on site conducting repairs,” the governor wrote on his Telegram channel.

Ukraine stepped up attacks on Russian territory with the start of the year, targeting mainly civilian properties and infrastructure, usually using drones either supplied directly by NATO backers or made locally from commercial models and parts.

The Kiev regime apparently views these attacks as a way to make up for the never ending failures of its forces on the battlefields.

The Russian military has already resumed missile and drone strikes against Ukraine in response. Much of the country’s military infrastructure and power grid have been hit.

you have to shoot down the drones before they can even take off, time to be more proactive

to be fair ukraine is massive country and they have a history of hiding their military assets even in civilian areas.

even if ukraine fall, nato can create terrorist groups in ukraine… they give them the drones and they launch from ukraine into russia or attack russia bases in ukraine etc etc.

you don’t need much to launch a drone… i mean look at terrorists in idlib (syria).

if ukra falls, the fsb and other agencies will have to hunt those domestic terrorists all over ukraine, like they are doing right now in russian territory. not a easy task, but it will have to be done.

CEO of Yapping

i don’t think russia wants ukraine to fall at all (if that was one of their goals they could have done that from the start). it seems they don’t want to conquer all of ukraine. btw i’m 90% sure russia wants none of the western ukraine… if you know why, you know.

russia goal never was to conquer all of ukraine, but one of their goal doesn’t add up, denazification of ukraine. without conquering all of ukraine? i don’t know how they gonna do that.

while i agree with you thatn this was not the goal (the goal was to liberate only donbass), the nazis continue to attack russian civilians. specially the nazis in west ukraine will have to be policed, so the goals are now to monitor, demilitarize and denazify t he whole country. nazis forced russia to take the whole country, which again was not the goal.

russia has a few more goals and overtime those might change as well… time will tell and we just have to wait and see how things go at the end.

russia is too soft, had it been israel in their stance, they would have used nuclear bombs thus far.

CEO of Yapping

the only country in the world that used nuclear weapons on another country was the united states – that is not a title you want as one of the world leader.

russia war is not on civilians like “israel” war on palestinians as well… i don’t even know how that came up in your head. let me remind you after gaza- “israel” war the us shut the fuk up about russia. you know why? because of what these rtded animal zionists doing in gaza. zionists making russians look like fuking angels…

the title “the only country in the world that used nuclear weapons” did not damage the usa. hell, even the japs worshiped and worship the yanks. so yes, if russia uses nukes, well so be it. crimea, donbass are integral part of russia, and the russian law says very clear that she can use any weapon necessary to protect her integrity as a country. including nuclear weapons.

context does matter here, the us used nuclear weapons against the japanese during ww2. we shouldn’t forget japanese war crimes, genocide and mass murder.

but we are talking about russia and ukraine here, the fact is ukraine is nothing like japan during ww2 and we all know how power nuclear weapons got nowadays. russia for a long time voice against use of nuclear weapons and support iran nuclear deal (russia and china really holding iran nuclear deal up).

CEO of Yapping

yes, any country not just russia would use any means to protect* themselves in case of real threat.

now, is ukraine really a threat to russia? let’s be real here, no they aren’t – ukraine can’t even take 1km from russian force. also, russia mentioned using any weapons (nukes) when nato threat russia… not ukraine.

russia follow rules of war unlike “israel”, the us and nato clowns… if russia act like another bully what is the point of angering the us for?

nato’s goal is to defeat and ultimately destroy the russian federation. but the day they achieve this goal will be the very day when the rf will press the red button (as stated in the constitution). and this will mean the immediate (because there is absolutely no way for defense) atomic destruction of these nato countries. i would do the same btw: if a killer kills me but i have the chance to kill him too, i would, ofc, no need for thinking. so in their places i would reconsider the goal.

lmfao, us congress to vote on aid for ukraine, israel, taiwan.

wow these countries are so strong that need the us aid 24/7… this is the true way of showing how powerful these countries are in reality.

what is funny is all of them are really fuked countries, ukraine is neo-nazi lover – “israel’s” apartheid against palestinians – taiwan is part of china (they all ignore that)… all of them are funded and supported by the us.

taiwan is actually a rich country. haiti on the other hand every single day is pouring refugees to the usa, because theya re the poorst country in the america, right next door to us, but still they get zero dollars from the usa. i am against alms but i think to invest some money in haiti would stop the migrant flood

CEO of Yapping

taiwan position is also very important not only for china but also other countries as well that want to spy on china.

fun fact about haiti, the richest man in haiti is gilbert bigio (he is jewish). also, he was sanctioned by the government of canada for his involvement in arms trafficking and human rights violations in haiti. lol speaking about gang in hitia surely he had no role in it.
