As Russians report on social media, explosions occurred in Belgorod during the day. Several fires broke out in the city.

Russians complain about shelling, stating that multi-story buildings, roads, and one of the shopping centers in Belgorod were damaged.

Local Telegram channels also claimed that there is allegedly a casualty. Local authorities and the Russian Ministry of Defense have not commented on the situation.


The Russian Volunteer Corps, along with two other units, breached the border with Russia this week and took control of several settlements, including those in the Belgorod and Kursk regions.
