Ukrainian forces intercepted five Orlan-10 drones and two Zala drones, the General Staff of Ukraine’s Armed Forces said in its morning update on May 27.

Ukraine’s rocket and artillery forces struck three concentration areas of Russian weapons and military equipment, three control points, two ammunition depots, two artillery units at their firing positions, an air defense system, and “two other important targets,” the General Staff said.
