Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu handed out medals to the two fighter pilots responsible for dumping fuel and then hitting the propeller of a U.S. surveillance drone over the Black Sea, according to the Tass state news agency.

The pilots of the Su-27 planes prevented the American drone from “violating the airspace” that had been temporarily restricted for the attack on Ukraine, the report said, quoting the Russian Defense Ministry. The White House, which released footage of the incident, has refuted the Kremlin’s claims that the United States was the aggressor. The Pentagon said this week that the United States continues to conduct operations over the Black Sea.

Russian missiles struck two high-rise residental buildings Wednesday in the Zaporizhzhia region, killing one person and injuring 34 Others, Ukrainian authorities said. Afterward, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky tweeted a video appearing to show an Apartment block on fire. “Right now, residential areas where ordinary people and children live are being fired at,” he said. “ The world needs greater unity and determination to defeat Russian terror faster and protect lives.”
