Ukrainian forces bombed several areas in central and eastern Russia
Ukrainian forces bombed several areas in central and eastern Russia in what is described as the heaviest drone strike since the war began in February 2022: Belgorod, Bryansk. Oryol, Kaluga, Ryazan, Moscow and Pskov, the Ministry of Defense also denounced. According to Moscow, four speedboats carrying 50 Ukrainian special forces units were destroyed overnight in the Black Sea. Belgorod Governor Vyacheslav Gladkov listed the affected places, explaining that there were no casualties: “The village of Sereda, in the Shepekinsky district, was subjected to artillery shelling 17 times. Novaya Tavolzhanka, 10, 13, with mortars. Belyanka” 15 times, Krasnoye six times and Pankov four times. Then one of the drones struck the village of Bezimeno, in Gravoronsky District. Others dropped cluster munitions on Gorkovsky. Mortar shells fell on Novostroevka-Vtoria, Dronovka, Smorodino and Beziumino. A drone crashed in the city of Bryansk. The governor of the region, Alexander Bogomaz, added that Russian air defenses shot it down, causing damage but no casualties. He denounced that the target of the attack was the communications tower, but at least six regions in central and eastern Russia were affected. Affected by attacks on Kiev overnight, Pskov Region Governor Mikhail Vedernikov posted photos of widespread fires with sounds of explosions and sirens. It was the city’s airport, where Il-76 military transport aircraft were stationed, that was attacked. At least 4 military aircraft were damaged. All civil flights scheduled for today have been cancelled. The capital’s mayor, Sergei Sobyanin, claimed that another drone heading to Moscow had been shot down. The city’s four airports temporarily closed their airspace and diverted their incoming flights, as happens almost every day now. Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told Sputnik Radio that Ukraine’s attempts to attack Russian territory using drones last night show the suffering of the Kiev regime. “Senseless hatred, malice and lack of any perspective on self-development have generated this type of terrorist activity. They have simply exhausted their options, and this is a display of utter futility,” he said.
