Russian air defenses down drone over Sevastopol

Sevastopol governor Mikhail Razvozhaev said the city's air defense system had been triggered after eyewitnesses reported hearing multiple explosions on Monday evening. According to local media outlets, the sounds shook the walls of a shopping center and shattered windows.

"At 18:15, in the Verkhnesadovoe district, air defenses were activated. The target was hit. At a high altitude, which is why the sound was audible in various parts of the city. Preliminary reports indicate that it was another drone. Keep calm — the city is well-protected," he wrote on Telegram.

Sevastopol’s air defenses have been activated repeatedly in recent days. On August 20 a drone crashed into the roof of the headquarters of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet.
