RUSSIA, UKRAINE: Ukrainian Forces may have struck a target inside Russia, multiple publications reported. The Russia-Ukraine war has been going on for more than a month and so far, with numerically superior Russia penetrating deep inside the Ukrainian territory.
Footage has emerged from Belgorod, in western Russia, which shows an encampment – believed to be an arms depot – hit by a Ukrainian missile late on Tuesday night, The Daily Mail reported.
The site of the missile blast is just 12 miles from the Russian-Ukrainian border near the village of Krasniy Oktyabr just outside the city of Belgorod. The fireworks were seen from Ukraine, The Daily Mail report further said.
There were no casualties, the New York Post reported quoting regional governor Vyacheslav Gladkov, but four Russian soldiers were injured in the missile attack, according to Russian news agency Tass. Last week, Tass had said in a report that two men were injured when a shell from Ukraine exploded in the same area, according to the Post.
The missile strike has not been officially confirmed by the Ukrainian defence forces, but if they do it, this will be the second Ukrainian strike on Russian territory since the start of the war. The first one was at the Millerovo airbase in February, according to The Daily Mail.
