A “drone and missile strike” by Ukraine—one of the largest coordinated operations to date—is launched.

While not officially confirmed by Kyiv, the assault would mark one of the most extensive and coordinated attacks to date within Russian-controlled regions.

According to Russia’s defense ministry, an S-200 missile was intercepted above the Kaluga region, which shares a border with Moscow. In the annexed Crimean peninsula, nine drones were neutralized by air defense units, with an additional 33 drones disabled through electronic means, causing them to crash before reaching their intended destinations.

Mikhail Razvozhayev, the governor appointed by Moscow for Sevastopol in Crimea, reported on the messaging app Telegram that multiple drones were eliminated on the outskirts of Sevastopol.

This offensive action follows the recent passing of Yevgeny Prigozhin, the leader of the Wagner private military company. His aircraft experienced a crash landing, resulting in his death and the deaths of nine others, on Wednesday.

In the aftermath of Prigozhin’s demise, Ukraine’s national resistance center cited sources within Belarus, a location where some Wagner fighters had been stationed, revealing that mercenaries were dismantling camps and forming convoys to exit the country. The center noted, “The convoys are likely heading towards the border with Russia.” These developments came after an online post by an unidentified individual wearing a mask, claiming to be affiliated with Wagner, included a menacing message. The masked person warned, “There’s much speculation about the Wagner Group’s next moves. We can share one thing: we’re initiating action, prepare for our presence.”
