Multiple explosions were reported on Thursday, October 6, in the Russian regions of Belgorod, Bryansk and Kursk, bordering Ukraine, with local officials blaming Ukrainian drones for the attacks.
The governor of Belgorod region, Vyacheslav Gladkov, said that multiple drones had targeted an ammunition depot in the village of Krasny Oktyabr, causing a fire.
The governor of Bryansk region, Alexander Bogomaz, said that a drone had been shot down over the region, causing damage to some buildings.
The governor of Kursk region, Roman Starovoit, said that a drone had been shot down over the regional capital, Kursk, causing no damage.
The Ukrainian government has not commented on the attacks. However, Ukrainian officials have previously said that they are using drones to target Russian military assets in Russian territory.
The attacks come as the Russia-Ukraine war enters its eighth month. The war has caused a humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, with millions of people displaced and thousands of civilians killed.
The war has also had a significant impact on the global economy, causing energy prices to rise and disrupting supply chains.
It is unclear what the long-term implications of the attacks on Russian territory will be. However, it is clear that the war in Ukraine is having a significant impact on both Russia and Ukraine, as well as the rest of the world.
