Explosions in Kursk

It's worth noting that Kursk is located approximately 100 kilometers from the border with Ukraine. Reports of explosions and complaints about so-called "drone attacks" have been increasingly frequent.

For example, on the night of August 27, explosions were heard in Kursk. Locals reported on social media that they also heard automatic gunfire.

Sources from RBC-Ukraine within the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) revealed that the military counterintelligence of the special services attacked an airfield in Kursk. This airfield houses aircraft and anti-aircraft defense systems of the occupiers.
