The ammunition hub, in the Belgorod region, was reportedly hit by Ukrainian assets and can be sen on fire through images captured shortly after the incident. Further attacks were also suspected with reports of explosions in the regions of the Voronezh and Kursk. Ukraine has not confirmed the strikes – but video appears to show anti-air missile being fired in the area.
The explosions are near the border of Ukraine and should it be confirmed as a Ukrainian strike, could be one of the first hits on Russian territory by Kyiv.
Russian forces have advanced to eastern Ukraine following a retreat from northern and central parts of the country in what Russian President Vladimir Putin is calling stage two of his “special operation.”
