Moscow said Friday it downed a second Ukrainian missile over southwestern Russia, shortly after saying it intercepted a missile whose debris fell on the city of Taganrog, injuring at least 15.

“Russian air defence systems intercepted a Ukrainian missile near the city of Azov in the Rostov region. Fragments of the downed Ukrainian missile fell in a deserted area,” the defence ministry said.
