Ukrainian air defense units shot down 14 of the 20 Shahed-type "kamikaze" drones that Russia launched overnight, the Air Force reported on Jan. 30.

Russia launched the unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) from three directions: Primorsko-Akhtarsk in Russia's Krasnodar Krai, the Russian city of Kursk, and Cape Chauda in occupied Crimea, the Air Force said.

The Russian military also reportedly fired three Iskander ballistic missiles from occupied Crimea and Voronezh Oblast.

Ukraine's defenses downed the 14 UAVs over Mykolaiv, Zaporizhzhia, Kirovohrad, Dnipropetrovsk, and Kharkiv oblasts, according to the Air Force.
