Baza also reports that drones also attacked the Belgorod region, hitting a police station and a public services centre in the locality of Maysky, as well as a thermal power plant in Belgorod. No injuries were reported.

Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, Russian territories have been attacked more than two thousand times, says Vladimir Kulishov, head of the Russian FSB Border Guard Service.

He says that, in the Russian border area, “the number of shelling from the territory of Ukraine of military, border, transport and energy infrastructure has increased,” including with the use of drones, since February 2022.
