Drones attacked the Russian Rostov Oblast and Krasnodar Krai on 5 July. Russian officials claim that at least six people were injured as a result of the attack.

According to the Russian Telegram channel Shot, UAV drones attacked an electrical substation in the city of Primorsko-Akhtarsk in Krasnodar Krai. Russians also claim that debris from one of the drones damaged a three-story building.

The sound of UAVs and several loud explosions were also heard in the area of the local electrical substation, after which electricity and water disappeared in some houses. According to Shot, six people were injured in the attack in Primorsko-Akhtarsk, including two children reportedly.

The governor of Krasnodar Krai, Veniamin Kondratyev, said that Russian air defense allegedly shot down several UAVs in Primorsko-Akhtarsk. He also confirmed that drone debris damaged a “civilian object on the city territory.”
