One resident of a Belgorod village killed by shelling

One resident of the village of Novaya Tavolzhanka, on the border with Ukraine in Russia’s Belgorod region, was killed by shelling, reports Belgorod governor Vyacheslav Gladkov.

“A girl died. She was outside when the shelling happened. I send my sincere condolences to her family and loved ones,” he said. 

Online outlet Baza reports that the deceased was a 12-year-old girl. According to the publication, the shelling damaged several private homes and cars. Regional authorities have not confirmed that information.

On February 19, Gladkov reported that several districts of the Belgorod region came under fire by the Ukrainian Armed Forces. Electrical transmission lines were damaged in several villages, and some houses’ windows were blown out. 

The authorities of the border districts of Belgorod report shelling from Ukraine nearly every day.
