Russian air defense forces intercepted a drone over Rostov Oblast, Governor Vasily Golubev claimed on Dec. 27.
Golubev said the drone was shot down in the early hours of Dec. 27, and that consequences on the ground were still being investigated. No information on casualties or damage has been reported.
Ukrainian officials have not commented on Golubev's claim.
Kyiv has repeatedly targeted military infrastructure in Russia and Russian-occupied territories. It does not typically comment on claims of drone strikes within Russia.
