At least four people have been injured in the latest large-scale shelling of Russia’s Belgorod Region, which borders Ukraine, local governor Vyacheslav Gladkov said on Wednesday.
In a statement on Telegram, Gladkov said that the situation in the border town of Shebekino was “deteriorating,” adding that in the early hours of the morning the settlement had been hit by a “massive strike” from Ukrainian forces.
The bombardment resulted in four people receiving injuries, Gladkov said, describing the condition of one man as “serious” after he suffered fragment wounds in the neck and back. The official added that one woman had also been taken to hospital with arm injuries, while another two people received medical assistance at the scene.
The Ukrainian attack featured missiles fired from Soviet-era Grad multiple rocket launcher systems, and resulted in around a dozen buildings suffering minor damage, including a local school, Gladkov said.
