Ukrainian counteroffensive

Ukrainian troops attacked two towns in the Russian province of Kursk, bordering Ukraine, from its territory, declared the governor of the region, Roman Starovoit.
“Since early morning shots have been fired from Ukraine against the towns of Glushkovo and Tiotkino in the Glushkovo border region,” Starovoit wrote on his Telegram channel.

He added that nine residential buildings were damaged in Tiotkino, two of which caught fire, and gas and electricity supplies were also interrupted, the Russian news agency Sputnik reported. In the town of Glushkovo, he added, several houses were also damaged.

Since February 24, 2022, when Russia invaded Ukraine and the armed confrontation between the two former Soviet republics began, Ukrainian forces fired on different occasions at towns in Russian territory, although the Kiev government always assured that its war activity was restricted to the defense of its territory, and not to incursion into the neighboring soil.

Russian provinces bordering Ukraine such as Belgorod, Bryansk, Kursk and Voronezh regularly report shelling, drone incursions and other attacks from across the border, forcing the population to seek refuge elsewhere. The Kursk region, bordering Sumy in Ukraine, has been under bombardment for more than a year.
