Russia-Ukraine war: Ukrainian forces accused of bombing border village

A Russian regional governor has accused Ukrainian forces of bombing a village near the Russian border with Ukraine, injuring three of its residents.
The governor of the Belgorod region revealed that three people had been injured, one of whom had been discharged from the hospital, and two women were still under the care of qualified doctors, adding that the injuries were of moderate severity. He also confirmed that the bombing damaged more than 30 houses, and that electricity and gas supplies would be resumed within the next few hours.
Earlier this month, Russia accused Ukraine of carrying out a helicopter attack on a fuel depot in Belgorod, which Kyiv denied responsibility, and of bombing villages and firing missiles at an ammunition depot.
