D“Since the beginning of October, the number of attacks by Ukrainian armed forces against Russian border areas has increased significantly,” the FSB, which is responsible for border control, said in a press release.


This is especially true in the Belgorod region, bordering Kharkiv in Ukraine, where Kiev’s forces have reclaimed thousands of square kilometers of territory since early September, including along the border. According to the FSB, the Russian regions of Bryansk and Kursk were also targeted.

“Over the past week, more than 100 bombings have been recorded in 32 locations, using multiple rocket missile systems, artillery, mortars and drones,” he continued.

According to the FSB, these Ukrainian bombings killed one “local resident and injured five people, including a child,” destroyed two power stations, eleven residential buildings, and two administrative buildings.

According to the same source, eight border checkpoints were also damaged.

Russian territories have already been targeted several times in the past seven months.

On September 12, a strike at a Russian border crossing left one dead and four injured and damaged residential houses and power lines.

In July, the Russian military accused Kyiv of firing three missiles at the city of Belgorod, capital of the region of the same name. In April, it was an oil depot that, according to Russia, was attacked by Ukrainian helicopters forty kilometers from the border.
