As per the source, this marks a continuation of attacks in Kursk, including strikes on the Federal Security Service (FSB) building and an oil refinery.

Explosions in Kursk

Earlier in the morning, there were reports of explosions in the Russian city of Kursk allegedly caused by drone attacks.

Subsequently, local authorities announced that in the city's Central District, there were purported damages to several private residences and the roof of an administrative building due to the "attack by Ukrainian UAVs" (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles).

Additionally, windows were shattered in a multi-story building. Traditionally, the Russian authorities reported that the "air defense systems had engaged the threats," and there were "no casualties."

The local governor claimed that one UAV had crashed in the Kursk district, causing shattered windows in a private residence.

Ongoing attacks on Kursk

Kursk witnessed unrest just the day before. The Ukrainian drone reportedly attacked the FSB building in Kursk and targeted an oil refinery near the local airport.

As usual, the Russian authorities asserted that they had "repelled the attacks." Meanwhile, Kursk Mayor Igor Kutsak canceled the city's fireworks display for City Day celebrations due to the situation.
