One dead in attack in Russia’s Belgorod region, governor says

Moscow, 18 December. Governor Vyacheslav Gladkov said at least one person was killed and eight wounded in today’s attack in the Belgorod region bordering Ukraine.

Gladkov assured that anti-aircraft batteries had to go into action to repel the attack, which did not prevent some projectiles from hitting the area.

On his Telegram channel, he reported that the injured have been hospitalized and one of them is in intensive care.

Several houses, multi-storey buildings, cars and a chicken factory were also damaged.

Gladkov blamed the Ukrainian military, which has already invaded the region several times with both small arms and artillery since the beginning of the Russian military intervention in February.

The governor recently oversaw the construction of defense lines in Belgorod, which are also being carried out in the Kursk region.

These are anti-tank defense structures similar to “dragon’s teeth”, pyramidal concrete blocks used during World War II to block the passage of motorized brigades.

In turn, regional defense units have also been formed in Belgorod and have started their military training exercises.

These regional defense units in border areas with Ukraine were created last October after Russian President Vladimir Putin declared martial law in Donetsk, Lugansk, Kherson and Zaporizhia, four Ukrainian regions annexed by Russia.

Putin initiated a “medium level response” in Ukraine—Krasnodar, Belgorod, Bryansk, Voronezh, Kursk and Rostov—as well as Russian border regions with the annexed Crimean peninsula.
