On 11 January, a drone strike damaged the roof of a workshop within the 711 aircraft repair plant in Borisoglebsk, located in Russia’s Voronezh Oblast, Russian Telegram channel Astra reported.

Ukraine is increasing the production of long-range suicide drones, as it currently lacks missiles with the capability to reach distant Russian military facilities.

Currently, there are no photos of the impact site. As per Astra, the incident reportedly resulted in a roof collapse over an area of 3 square meters, though there were no reported casualties.

According to Astra, Governor Gusev described the event, stating that the UAV “penetrated the roof of a non-residential building in one of the municipalities of the Voronezh Oblast.”

Borisoglebsk is located about 400 km from the Ukrainian border.

On 9 January, several drones reportedly struck an oil depot and the building of a local energy provider in Russia’s Oryol.
