According to a Reuters report, the FSB says that it thwarted a high-profile assassination attempt on Governor Vyacheslav Gladkov. At least one person was wounded in the southern Russian region of Belgorod on Monday after Russian forces shot down three missiles.
Russia says its large border city of Belgorod has come under a fresh missile attack from Ukraine on Monday, following an uptick in drone attacks on various Russian cities and facilities.
The missiles were intercepted, the Russian military says. “At least one person was wounded in the southern Russian region of Belgorod on Monday after Russian forces shot down three missiles, the governor of the region bordering Ukraine said,” Reuters reports.
Governor Vyacheslav Gladkov described on Telegram that “The falling debris had also brought down some power lines near the town of Novy Oskol” but also said the damage has not been fully assessed.
“It’s known about one wounded, a man with shrapnel wounds to his hand,” Gladkov confirmed. He stopped short of naming Ukraine as being behind the attack, but over the course of the war there’s been numerous instances of fire coming from Ukrainian forces. The Russian city of some 400,000 people lies a mere 25 miles from the Ukrainian border.
