Moscow: Russia's war in Ukraine reverberated dramatically back onto its own territory on Wednesday, with a "massive" shelling in Belgorod injuring four people and preliminary information indicating a drone crashed and ignited a fire at an oil refinery farther south, according to media reports.
Official sources report, a settlement in the border district of Belgorod, eight apartment buildings, four homes, a school and two administrative buildings were damaged during the shelling, as the oblast becomes a hotbed of wandering violence.
Vyacheslav Gladkov, governor of Russia's Belgorod region, said there was more shelling of a border area later Wednesday, which he blamed on Ukrainian forces.
"The situation in Shebekino is not getting better. There is shelling on Shebekino, there is a fire at one of the industrial enterprises," Gladkov said in a live broadcast. (with Agency inputs)
