Russian village bombed from Ukraine – governor

One person was injured after the village of Sereda in Russia’s Belgorod region was shelled from Ukraine, the regional governor said.

Another village in Russia’s Belgorod region was shelled from Ukraine on Sunday, Governor Vyacheslav Gladkov said. The colony of Sereda is located on the border between the two countries.

One person was injured in the attack, “suffering from a wound by shrapnel”, Gladkov wrote on Telegram, adding that he would receive medical attention.

Sereda made headlines earlier this week when reports on social media emerged claiming the village had been seized by the Ukrainian army. The authorities of the Belgorod region rejected this information as false.
