At least three people have been killed in Belgorod overnight in what appears to be the worst cross-border shelling of Russian territory by Ukraine
Ukraine launched three Tochka-U ballistic missiles loaded with cluster munitions at the Russian city of Belgorod, the Russian Defense Ministry said on Sunday. It added that all three had been intercepted mid-air, but that parts of one of the missiles had hit a house.
Regional Governor Vyacheslav Gladkov said that three people were killed and four injured overnight. He added that 11 apartment complexes and at least 39 smaller houses were damaged.
Russian news outlet Baza later reported that two more bodies were recovered from under the rubble, raising the death toll to five. This was not confirmed by officials.
Belgorod is located around 40km from the Ukrainian border.

RT (Russia Today) is a state-owned news organization funded by the Russian government. The information provided by this news source is being included by the Libertarian Hub not as an endorsement of the Russian government, but rather because it is being actively censored by Big Tech, Western governments and the corporate press. During times of conflict it is imperative that we have access to both sides of the story so we can form our own opinions, even if both sides are spewing their own propaganda. The censorship of RT, despite likely being a propaganda outfit for the Russian government, reduces our ability to hear one side of the conflict.
