For example, the governor of the Oryol region, Andrey Klychkov, said that the UAVs flying towards the region were allegedly shot down. However, in the Glazunovsky and Sverdlovsk districts, energy infrastructure facilities were damaged during their neutralization.

"This led to a partial power outage in a number of households. Operational services are working at the scene, eliminating the consequences of the attack and restoring power supply," Klychkov wrote.
