Ukraine shot down 22 of the 36 Shahed-type attack drones launched by Russia overnight on March 14, the General Staff said in its morning update.

Two drones were destroyed over Mykolaiv Oblast, three over Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, local authorities reported. There is no data on the downing of targets over other regions.

Overnight, the groups of Russian drones were also spotted in Kharkiv and Sumy oblasts, according to the Air Force.
