The authorities of Russia’s Kursk region said at least one civilian was killed in Ukrainian shelling on one of the region’s villages.
“Another enemy attack that took place at dawn, unfortunately, ended in tragedy,” Roman Starovoit, the governor of the western Kursk region on the border with Ukraine said on Thursday.
Starovoit stated the victim was a truck driver delivering raw materials to a local factory; it was subjected to several blows from Ukraine, adding that a number of others were injured in the attack and are undergoing treatment.
The governor indicated that efforts are underway to put out a fire that broke out after the shelling, which damaged a number of houses around the village.
He added that there are reports about unexploded shells, and specialists working on the site to collect data about the attack.
Starovoit reported on Wednesday evening that Ukraine shelled two border villages, including Tyotkino, without injuries.
What happened today is the second civilian death in the Ukrainian shelling on the Russian regions of Belgorod, Bryansk, and Kursk, where Moscow continues its special operation.
