Three people were killed in a Ukrainian drone attack in Russia's Belgorod region on Wednesday, the governor said on his Telegram channel, APA reports citing CNN.
Two people died when a Ukrainian drone dropped four shrapnel grenades near a sanatorium in the village of Lava, while another man died later from injuries, Governor Vyacheslav Gladkov said.
The governor listed over 10 districts and villages in the border region that have come under Ukrainian artillery fire and drone attacks over the past 24 hours.
Separately, the Russian Ministry of Defense said it had intercepted and destroyed a drone over the region on Wednesday morning.
“Today, at about 11:30 Moscow time, an attempt by the Kyiv regime to carry out a terrorist attack with an aircraft-type unmanned aerial vehicle was thwarted,” the ministry said.
No casualties were reported in this attack, the ministry added.
