Ukraine has been suffering heavy losses daily since it launched its so-called "counteroffensive" in June.
Russian air defense systems shot down 11 Ukrainian aircraft-type unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) over Crimea overnight, the Russian Defense Ministry said early Thursday.

"On September 14, around 5:30 a.m. Moscow time, an attempt by the Kiev regime to carry out terrorist attacks against facilities in the territory of the Russian Federation using aircraft-type UAVs was thwarted. Air defense systems on duty destroyed 11 unmanned aerial vehicles over the territory of the Republic of Crimea," the ministry said in a statement.

the Ukrainian armed forces also attacked Russia's Sergei Kotov patrol vessel of the Black Sea Fleet using five drone boats, but all drone boats were destroyed, the ministry said.

"On 14 September at around 05:00 [Moscow time, 02:00 GMT], the Ukraine Armed Forces attempted to attack the Black Sea Fleet patrol ship Sergei Kotov in the waters of the Black Sea by five uncrewed boats. In the course of repelling the attack, five enemy uncrewed boats were destroyed by fire from the ship's standard weapons," the ministry added.
