A drone attack on Belgorod Oblast killed two people and injured two others, Governor Vyacheslav Gladkov claimed on Oct. 12.

Shortly after midnight on Oct. 12, Gladkov reported that Russian air defense shot down a drone en route to the city of Belgorod.

Falling debris caused a fire to break out in a house, killing two.

Gladkov said the two victims, a man and a woman, were found buried under the rubble. He also said emergency services were continuing to search the site for additional victims.
