Russia Says Ukrainian Drone Attack Killed Two on Border

A Ukrainian drone attack on the Russian border region of Belgorod killed two people on Friday, the Russian governor said.

He said three Ukrainian “kamikaze drones” hit the village of Rozhdestvenska, close to the border with Ukraine, in a region that has come under frequent artillery, rocket, and drone attack throughout the two-year conflict.

“As a result of the explosions, two people were killed and a third man was serious wounded,” Governor Vyacheslav Gladkov said in a post on Telegram.

An ambulance crew had been dispatched to the site to treat the victims, Gladkov added.

In a series of earlier statements, Russia’s defense ministry said its air defense forces had downed several Ukrainian drones over the Belgorod region throughout Friday morning.

Both Russia and Ukraine regularly fire explosive-packed drones at each other’s territory in an attempt to strike targets behind the frontlines.
