The governor of Russia's Kursk region, Roman Starovoit, said in a statement on Telegram that "several Ukrainian drones were shot down" near the region's administrative center, the city of Kursk.

Starovoit called on citizens to remain calm and report findings of any suspicious objects, including aerial vehicles.
