MOSCOW, November 23. /TASS/. Over the past month a total of 21 drones have been shot down while approaching the Belgorod Region, the region’s governor, Vyacheslav Gladkov, said on Wednesday.
"Over the past month alone, 21 approaching drones were shot down. True, high-tech equipment was used, but without our defenders, without our border guards, it would have been impossible to do this," Gladkov wrote on his Telegram channel.
On Wednesday, Gladkov met with a group of border guards and thanked them for their service on behalf of all residents of the Belgorod Region. To help the border guards from the technical point of view, including accommodation, the local authorities, volunteers and businesses had pooled their efforts, he stressed.
