The Russian Defence Ministry confirmed reports of as many as 17 UAVs attacking Crimea.
Three enemy drones were shot down by air defence forces, the Defence Ministry said on July 24.
"As a result of the thwarted terrorist attack, there were no casualties,” the Defence Ministry said.
Crimea head Sergei Aksyonov said that an ammunition depot in the Dzhankoy region was damaged as a result of the drone strike. The wreckage of one of the drones damaged a private house located in Kirovsky district of the peninsula. No one was hurt, the official said.
Aksyonov also decided to evacuate residents of nearby villages within a radius of five kilometres from the attack site in the Dzhankoy district to temporary accommodation centres.
The counter-offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is subsiding, and many try to make forecasts about the outcome of military operations in Ukraine
