On Sunday, Russia alleged that Ukraine conducted attacks in the border regions of Bryansk and Belgorod, resulting in damage to five train carriages and one injury.
Moscow announced an investigation into a Ukrainian strike that reportedly harmed a civilian near the border, without providing further details. Vyacheslav Gladkov, the governor of Belgorod in Western Russia, mentioned drone and missile attacks, noting damage in Valuyki, including three houses and five railway carriages.
Russia’s Defense Ministry claimed the destruction of two Ukrainian drones in Belgorod, thwarting what they termed a “terrorist attack.” Ukrainian strikes on Russian territory have increased recently, following Ukraine’s counteroffensive in June.
In response, Kyiv reported a strike by Moscow that resulted in the death of a 64-year-old man and injuries to his wife in the southern region of Kherson.
Ukrainian officials marked the anniversary of Kherson city’s recapture, liberated a year ago in a significant frontline shift.
