Seven people were wounded in a Ukrainian shelling of Russia’s Belgorod Region early on Monday, Governor Vyacheslav Gladkov has said.
The region’s Valuysky District, which borders Ukraine, came under fire, Gladkov wrote on Telegram.
A child, who suffered a broken collarbone, was among those injured in the incident. Five other people were hospitalized with moderate injuries. One man suffered a head trauma, three women received shrapnel wounds, and another female was left shell-shocked. Two other residents of the Valuysky District sought medical due to minor cuts, the governor said.
Five apartment blocks and four private homes were hit in the attack, with windows smashed and facades damaged. A blaze has also broken out in a utility building, Gladkov said.
