Ukrainian Missiles Hit Military Camps Inside Russia: Report

Russia-Ukraine War: Footage of the explosion is widely circulated online.

The Ukrainian army may have attacked targets inside Russia, several publications reported. The Russo-Ukrainian war has been going on for more than a month and so far, with Russia superior in terms of numbers penetrating deep into Ukrainian territory.

Footage has emerged from Belgorod, in western Russia, showing the camp – believed to be a weapons depot – being hit by a Ukrainian missile late Tuesday night, The Daily Mail reported.

The site of the missile blast was just 12 miles from the Russian-Ukrainian border near the village of Krasniy Oktyabr outside Belgorod. The fireworks were seen from Ukraine, The Daily Mail further reports said.

No casualties, New York Post reported citing provincial governor Vyacheslav Gladkov, but four Russian soldiers were injured in the missile attack, according to Russian news agency Tass.

Last week, Tass had said in a report that two men were injured when bullets from Ukraine exploded in the same area, according to Pos.

The missile attack has not been officially confirmed by Ukrainian defense forces, but if they do, this will be Ukraine’s second attack on Russian territory since the start of the war. The first was at Millerovo air base in February, according to The Daily Mail.

According to some Ukrainian journalists, the Russian depot in Belgorod was destroyed by an OTR-21 Tochka-U ballistic missile fired by the 19th Ukrainian missile brigade, although this has not been officially confirmed by Ukrainian defense officials.

The blast came on the day Russia announced it would begin withdrawing troops from Kyiv and Chenihiv following peace talks with Ukrainian officials in Istanbul.

But Ukraine responded with skepticism to Russia’s promises, with President Volodymyr Zelensky saying they were “not naive”.

“The people of Ukraine have already known for 34 days of this aggression, and over the past eight years of the war in Donbass, that the only thing they can trust is a concrete result,” he said on Tuesday.

The incursion was stopped in most parts by fierce resistance from the Ukrainian army which had recaptured the territory despite civilians trapped in the besieged cities.
