Drones attacked several Russian oblasts, including Lipetsk, Belgorod, and Kursk, overnight on May 1, their local authorities claimed.

"Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)" were 'suppressed' over the Stanovlyan district, and the subsequent fire at the power substation is being extinguished, Lipetsk Governor Igor Artamonov claimed.

Air Defense shot down several air targets headed toward Belgorod the same night, Belgorod Governor Vyacheslav Gladkov claimed.

A residential building, a sauna, and a garage were demolished as a result of a direct hit in Belgorod Oblast, he alleged.

"Three peaceful residents who were at home at that moment miraculously escaped with light scratches and bruises!” Gladkov claimed.

“They refused to call an ambulance. The head of the settlement took them to their relatives."

Five homes and three cars in the village were also damaged, he alleged.

Eight plane-type UAVs were also shot down overnight in Kursk Oblast, Russian propaganda media TASS claimed, referencing local authorities.
