An explosion occurred in the Russian city of Belgorod this afternoon, according to a statement by the governor of the Belgorod region of the Russian Federation, Vyacheslav Gladkov. This happened at the same time as the Ukrainian authorities reported the shelling of Kharkiv and Kharkiv region.

Today, between 14:30 and 15:00, Belgorod Telegram channels reported the sounds of an explosion in the city, and then posted photos and videos of a fire at the site of the explosion. At the same time, Kharkiv Mayor Ihor Terekhov reported Russian strikes on the Ukrainian city.

Later, Belgorod Governor Gladkov confirmed that an explosion had occurred in Belgorod, but he did not name its cause. According to Gladkov, five people were injured in the explosion. They sustained injuries of varying severity.

In addition, 30 private houses and 10 cars were damaged. Russian rescuers, according to Gladkov, are working to eliminate two fires.

Fires and destruction in Belgorod

Although it is not yet known what exactly happened in Belgorod, such incidents are commonplace in the Belgorod region. Russians occasionally bomb their own territory. In April last year, a Russian fighter jet accidentally dropped a bomb on Belgorod.

And last month, a few kilometers from the village of Krasnoye near Belgorod, a Kh-59 missile was found that had been lost by Russian aviation.

In total, according to Russian media, in March and April of this year, more than 20 cases of Russian aircraft dropping bombs on the territory of the Belgorod region were recorded.
