One Killed in Ukrainian Strike on Russian Border Region – Authorities

Ukrainian shelling on the Russian border region of Belgorod killed one person on Saturday morning, local authorities said.

"This morning, the Armed Forces of Ukraine hit the village of Urazovo in the Valuysky district with Grad missiles," Governor Vyacheslav Gladkov wrote on Telegram.

"One person died — a man who was on the street at the time of the shelling."

Russian regions bordering Ukraine like Belgorod have reported repeated attacks from Kyiv's forces including occasional cross-border incursions.

Air defenses destroyed three Tochka-U missiles over the region on Saturday morning, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

The ministry also said it thwarted a drone attack on Moscow.

The mayor of Moscow Sergei Sobyanin said there was "no damage or casualties" after air defense downed the drone over the district of Istrinsky.

Attacks on Russian territory, which were rare at the beginning of the offensive, have intensified in recent months, with Kyiv increasingly claiming responsibility.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
