Russia blames Ukraine for attack on 39 houses and 11 blocks of flats on Russian soil killing 3 people (video)

Russia has accused Ukraine of causing explosions which reportedly killed three people in the Russian city of Belgorod, near the border with Ukraine on Sunday morning, July 3.

At least 39 houses and 11 blocks of flats were hit in Belgorod, Russian officials say.

Belgorod regional governor said the blasts hit dozens of residential buildings and air defences had been activated.

According to the Kremlin, Sunday’s attack had been a deliberate attempt by Ukrainian forces to target civilians. However, Ukraine’s government has dismissed the claim, saying the Russians had lied about similar incidents in the past.

Russian defence ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said air defences had destroyed three Ukrainian Tochka-U ballistic missiles with cluster warheads, but fragments of one of them fell on a block of flats.

“This missile attack was intentionally planned and launched at the civilian population,” he added.
