Russian-installed head of occupied Crimea, Sergey Aksyonov, claimed that the occupiers brought down nine hostile drones on the night of June 4.  

Aksyonov said that five were shot down and four were forced to land using electronic warfare. Another drone was found unexploded, which necessitated evacuating 50 people from the area, he claimed.
