Confirming there were no casualties, Vyacheslav Gladkov, regional governor for the town which lies about 56 miles north of the Ukrainian border, said on Telegram: “Power lines are damaged. Trains are temporarily suspended."
On Oct. 13, he accused Ukraine of shelling an apartment block in the city of Belgorod, the administrative center of the Belgorod region.
Mykhaylo Podolyak, a senior Ukrainian presidential adviser, denied Kyiv’s military was responsible and said Russia had tried to shell Ukraine’s second-largest city of Kharkiv on the border “but something went wrong” and missiles struck apartment buildings instead, as what a video showed.
The Russian news agency RIA Novosti has reported that a number of people have been killed by an explosion at a huge ammunition depot in the Belgorod region. The Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation said it has opened a criminal investigation into the blast in Oktyabrsky village.
"It is reported that in the village of Oktyabrsky, Belgorod District, Belgorod Region, an ammunition depot was blown up as a result of shelling by the armed forces of Ukraine. According to preliminary data, there are dead and wounded," it said on Telegram.
