Khmelnytskyi regional governor Serhii Tiurin said the air defence shot down nine aerial targets over his region. Local authorities have not received any reports of casualties or property damage, he added. Governor Vitaliy Kim said the military destroyed six drones and three cruise missiles over the southern region of Mykolaiv. It comes as the Russian navy missile cruiser Varyag has carried out drills in the Mediterranean Sea, the state-owned TASS news agency reported on Thursday, citing the navy command.” (06/27/24)
