A Ukrainian drone has crashed into the roof of a railway station in a city in western Russia Kursk In the early hours of Sunday morning, five people were injured and the building was damaged, according to the district governor.
Russia’s Kursk region borders Ukraine and has apparently been the scene of previous Ukrainian attacks.
One of the station’s platforms has been temporarily closed; However, passengers are still able to board and leave trains on two other platforms at the station, Governor Roman Starovoit said in an update on Telegram.
He added that the roof and the façade were also damaged, and there was damage to the waiting room and a pedestrian tunnel.
He said that five people were slightly injured, adding: “At the time of the explosion there were 50 occupants in the building, and they were evacuated immediately. Of the five shrapnel victims, two refused medical assistance, three were sent for examination to the Kursk Regional Hospital and have already been released to their homes.” “.
Earlier this month, Russia said shells fired by Ukraine hit an apartment building in the village of Volvino in the northern Kursk region, injuring three people, according to Roman Starovoit, the region’s governor.
Reported bombing and drone attacks by Ukrainian forces have occurred with increasing frequency in recent months as they launch their counter-offensive with the aim of capturing territory captured by Russia.
Kiev rarely takes direct credit for such attacks, but Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has said the war is “gradually returning” to Russian territory.
Meanwhile, Russia continues to regularly bomb Ukraine. A Russian missile struck a square in the center of the northern Ukrainian city of Chernihiv on Saturday, killing seven people and injuring more than 100 others.
