During the night from Saturday to Sunday, another attack occurred in the Belgorod region. The Russian side claims that one person was injured. A video of a burning house has been posted online.

Recently, the Russian Belgorod region bordering Ukraine has been subject to regular attacks. Sabotage actions in cities along the border are believed to be carried out by organizations such as the Legion "Freedom of Russia" Russian Volunteer Corps, and Siberian Battalion. The Ukrainian side has not commented on their actions.

Attacks on the Belgorod region: "Ten missiles destroyed"

According to the Russian news agency Interfax, the governor of the Belgorod region, Vyacheslav Gladkov, reported on Sunday morning (March 31) about a missile threat in the region.

"An air defense alarm has been activated in Belgorod and the Belgorod region," Gladkov reported on his Telegram channel. The alarm was soon canceled - it lasted about 45 minutes. A video of a burning house appeared online in connection with the missile attack on the Russian region.


The Russian Ministry of Defense reported that ten missiles from the RM-70 Vampire multiple launch rocket system were destroyed over the Belgorod region. It is worth noting that the Czechs supplied modified launchers of this type to Ukraine. "Ten missiles were destroyed in the air over the Belgorod region by air defense systems," the report said.

Russian side: One person injured in the attack

According to Interfax, preliminary findings indicate that one person was injured in the attack - a woman suffered burns to her hand. Eighteen private households were damaged. According to the governor, water supply lines were also damaged. Since March 11, the Belgorod region and neighboring municipalities have been under attack.

The Russian side describes these attacks as "intensive" and reports casualties. "People are being evacuated from the most heavily shelled neighborhoods to temporary accommodation centers in safe areas of the region, and are also being evacuated from the Belgorod region. For safety reasons, children are being evacuated to other regions of the Russian Federation," militarynews.ru reports. Over 800 protective structures have been installed in Belgorod and its suburbs to protect against shelling. Russia blames Ukraine for the attacks.

Belgorod region: Governor Gladkov orders unprecedented evacuation of thousands of children

As reported, the authorities of the Belgorod region announced that 24 people were killed and over 150 injured in the past two weeks in border areas.

Governor Vyacheslav Gladkov ordered distance learning in Belgorod and border municipalities until the end of the school year. The decision applies to municipalities in the Belgorod region and parts of the Kursk region.

Restrictions in the vicinity of Belgorod will also affect trade - only centers and shops built with solid bricks and whose employees are trained in first aid will remain open. The Russian administration evacuated five thousand children from the Belgorod region. The governor announced on his Telegram channel that children were transported to St. Petersburg, Bryansk, and Makhachkala, among other places.

Radio Svoboda reported that in recent weeks, Belgorod and neighboring Russian towns have been shelled by the Ukrainian army in retaliation for bombings of Ukrainian cities.

Volunteers from the Freedom of Russia Legion attack Belgorod

Recall that on the night of March 11 to 12, Russian anti-Putin legions operating within the Ukrainian army announced that they had crossed the border of the Russian Federation.

Ukrainian intelligence representative Andriy Yusuf commented to RBK-Ukraine agency that these are autonomous actions carried out by Russian citizens, to which they are fully entitled.

Russian volunteers from the Freedom of Russia Legion, fighting on the side of Ukraine, reportedly launched the previously announced attack on Russian Belgorod on March 16, according to the independent Belarusian news portal Nexta.

Russian volunteer units fighting on the Ukrainian side had earlier announced attacks on Belgorod and Kursk.

They wrote that their target would be military infrastructure used for attacks on Ukraine. Earlier, these units had crossed from Ukraine into the territories of neighboring regions of the Russian Federation.
