Moscow said that a Ukrainian drone attack on a bomber air base in southern Russia killed three people.

The Ministry of Defense said that the air defenses shot down the drone near the Ingels base, but the falling debris fatally injured three technical staff.

Earlier this month, Russia accused Ukraine of launching a similar attack on the airport, which houses bombers that carried out missile attacks on Ukraine.

The base is located about 500 km northeast of the Ukrainian border.
