The Kalibr missiles were shot down at about 4 p.m. in the southern direction, the Ukrainian Defence Ministry said on Telegram with reference to the Air Force Command.
At night, two Russian Ka-52 attack helicopters were shot down in Kherson Region.
"Also, units of anti-aircraft missile troops and mobile firing groups destroyed 11 Shahed-136 kamikaze drones and three tactical UAVs. The forces and means of the Air Force Commands South, Centre, East and West were involved in the destruction of air targets," it noted.
