Russia continues to successfully repel Kiev's attempts to carry out terrorist attacks on its territory.
Russian air defenses have destroyed two Ukrainian aircraft-type drones over the Kaluga and Tver regions, the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement.

"In the early morning of September 16, an attempt by the Kiev regime to carry out a terrorist attack with two aircraft-type unmanned aerial vehicles on facilities located on the territory of Russia was thwarted. Air defense systems on duty destroyed the Ukrainian drones over the Kaluga and Tver regions," the ministry said.

Since the beginning of Kiev's so-called "counteroffensive," Ukraine has suffered heavy losses on the battlefield. To compensate for its failures, Ukraine has been sending drones into Russian territory almost daily.
