Explosions in the Belgorod region

Explosions have been increasingly heard in the Belgorod region lately, including in the regional center.

Russian officials and propagandists accuse Ukraine of attacks following the explosions and fantasize about the "successful" work of the air defense.

In particular, explosions in Belgorod were heard on December 30. At that time, Russian media wrote about the shelling of the city.

Afterward, sources from RBC-Ukraine reported that Ukrainian defenders had targeted military facilities in the city.
