Russian governor of Belgorod: two explosions in the region, no casualties

Vyacheslav Gladkov, the governor of Russia’s Belgorod region, said in a post on social media that two explosions occurred in the prime Monday morning hours in that region of southern Russia on the border with Ukraine.

Gladkov said: “There were no injuries or damage,” according to the Reuters news agency.

Other Russian regions bordering Ukraine have announced cross-border bombing operations since the start of the Russian military operation against Ukraine on 24 February.

Gladkov said on Sunday that one person was injured in a fire broke out in a facility of the Russian Defense Ministry in the region bordering Ukraine. He added that the victim is a resident of the area and that her minor injuries pose no threat to her life.

So far, there have been no comments from the Russian Defense Ministry.

In another incident, Roman Starovit, governor of the Kursk region, which also borders Ukraine, said a railway bridge on a line used by freight trains was damaged.

In a video clip posted on his Telegram channel on Sunday, Starovit described the incident as an act of vandalism.

Last month, Russia accused Ukraine of carrying out an attack in helicopter to a fuel depot in Belgorod, but Kiev denied responsibility for the attack.

Moscow also accused Ukraine of bombing villages and firing missiles at an ammunition depot.
