A drone allegedly dropped an explosive device on an electrical substation in Russia's Kursk Oblast, Governor Roman Starovoyt reported on May 23.

According to Starovoyt, the villages of Plekhovo, Guevo, and Gornal were left without electricity as a result. Repair work on the electrical substation is underway, he said.

No casualties were reported.
