Quote: “In the morning and in the afternoon [of 13 July – ed.], two [Russian – ed.] Ka-52 [helicopters – ed.] conducted three airstrikes on our positions in Kherson Oblast. There were no casualties.
In addition, two Su-27 fighter jets attempted to bombard the Zmiinyi (Snake) Island. The bombs missed their target, landing in the sea near the island.
In Kherson Oblast, our anti-aircraft missile unit successfully struck down an Eleron-3 drone which the enemy deployed to conduct reconnaissance of our positions in the Bilozersk hromada [amalgamated territorial community – ed.]. A [Russian – ed.] suicide drone ‘was caught red-handed’ in the Velyka Oleksandrivka hromada; Ukrainianforces destroyed it before it caused damage.” [A loitering munition, also known as a suicide drone or kamikaze drone, is an aerial weapon system category in which the munition loiters – waits passively – around the target area for some time and attacks only once a target is located – ed.]
