A Ukrainian unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) hit a residential building in Belgorod City on Sunday, the regional governor reports

A Ukrainian UAV struck an apartment block in the Russian city of Belgorod on Sunday, the governor of Belgorod Region, Vyacheslav Gladkov, said in a Telegram post on Monday. The attack has left a ten-year-old girl injured, he added.

The child suffered multiple injuries to her leg and arm and was taken to a local hospital by her parents, the governor said. She was walking near the targeted building when the drone hit it, Gladkov said.

The attack also damaged five apartments in the block as well as 16 cars parked nearby and an infrastructure facility, Gladkov said.

Drone downed over Russian territory – Defense Ministry

On Sunday, the Russian Defense Ministry reported that a Ukrainian drone was destroyed over the region that borders Ukraine. Military officials noted at that time that the incident did not cause any casualties or material damage.

The Russian border regions of Kursk, Bryansk and Belgorod have been frequently shelled by artillery and attacked by drones since Moscow launched its military operation in Ukraine in February 2022. The constant shelling of the city of Shebekino, located close to the Ukrainian border, prompted the Belgorod regional authorities to evacuate civilians from the hardest-hit areas.

In early June, armed groups from Ukraine launched a series of incursions into the Belgorod region. The fighting in early June centered on the village of Novaya Tavolzhanka. The intruders suffered significant casualties and were eventually driven back, the Russian Defense Ministry said at the time.

The incursions were conducted by the Russian Volunteer Corps (RDK) and the ‘Freedom of Russia’ Legion, two Kiev-aligned units that include fighters with neo-Nazi backgrounds. In late June, the governor of the western Russian Pskov region, Mikhail Vedernikov, revealed that 14 soldiers from his region had died repelling one such raid.
