6 Wounded in Cross-Border Attacks on Russia’s Belgorod Region

At least six civilians in southwestern Russia’s Belgorod region have been wounded in Ukrainian shelling, Governor Vyacheslav Gladkov said Thursday.

A man received shrapnel wounds when a “kamikaze” drone attacked a bus in the village of Novaya Tavolzhanka, less than 5 kilometers from Ukraine’s Kharkiv region, Gladkov wrote on the messaging app Telegram.

He later said five others were hospitalized following a rocket attack in the village of Rzhevka, located 10 kilometers from the border.

One of those injured was said to be in severe condition, with amputated arms and legs.

“The doctors are fighting for his life,” Gladkov wrote.

Russia’s Defense Ministry said it had intercepted 12 Ukrainian missiles over the Belgorod region.

Kyiv has not claimed responsibility for the attack.

Belgorod has borne the brunt of an increasing number of drone and missile strikes since December.

In the deadliest strike on Russian soil since Moscow invaded Ukraine, 25 residents were killed and more than 100 others were wounded in attacks on the city of Belgorod on Dec. 30.

… 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.
