"Two people died during the drone crash near Belgorod, and there may be a child left under the rubble," the governor said.

According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, the drone was Ukrainian. The Ukrainian Armed Forces have not commented on the incident.

Residents of Belgorod complained about drone attacks a week ago. The residents heard explosions, and videos of the attacks appeared online.

Prior to this, in the Bryansk region, locals heard explosions, and part of a settlement was left without electricity. There were at least four explosions.

A day before the attack on the Bryansk region, a drone was spotted in the sky, and it was allegedly "shot down by air defense systems." Ukraine was traditionally blamed for everything.
