Belgorod, Kursk, and Bryansk regions of Russia were attacked by drones. A fire broke out at the crash site of a drone near the city of Stary Oskol, according to the Russian Ministry of Defense.

It is noted that three unmanned aerial vehicles were destroyed over the territory of the Belgorod region by air defense forces.

Russian sources report that explosions were heard near the city of Stary Oskol, and a bright flash was visible in the sky.

Eyewitnesses filmed the fire outside the city.

In some areas of the city, there was a partial loss of light and electricity. Russian military units are located around the city.

The Governor of the Belgorod region, Vyacheslav Gladkov, reported an attack by UAVs on the village of Istobnoye in the Gubkinsky city district.

"As a result of the non-explosive fall, there were no casualties, but a summer veranda of a private residential building was damaged. Emergency services are working at the scene," he said.

Bryansk region

Drones also attacked the Bryansk region. Governor Alexander Bogomaz reported that five drones were destroyed over the Vygonsky district. As a result of the fall of the downed drone, a fire broke out at an energy infrastructure facility.
