Ukraine strikes hit two Russian regions, wounding seven people
Ukraine’s recent counteroffensive against Russia takes a new form with its strikes on two Russian border regions on Monday. The attacks resulted in several residential buildings being hit in the Valuisk district of the Belgorod region, causing a total of seven casualties, including a child. The state governor revealed images that showed a teddy bear against a broken window, proof that the conflict claims civilians’ lives.
In another instance, Ukraine hit two villages in the Kursk border region, which caused property damage and power outages but luckily no casualties.
This growing tension culminated in the shooting down of two drones over Crimea by Russian forces. Crimea has been under Russian control since 2014 when they annexed it from Ukraine, but there is still hostility between the two countries.
With the inevitability of more battles in the coming weeks, the situation is dire as lives are lost and properties damaged.
