A large-scale Ukrainian attack hit Belgorod and the surrounding region on the evening of May 11, inflicting damage and casualties, claimed the regional governor, Vyacheslav Gladkov.

Ukraine does not usually comment on reported attacks against Belgorod. The Kyiv Independent could not verify the claims made by Russian officials.

Gladkov reported a missile attack alert in the oblast at around 8:15 p.m. local time. Russian Telegram channels published footage of burning cars and smoke rising over Belgorod soon after.

According to Gladkov, a woman was killed in the attack, and 29 people, including a child, were injured and hospitalized.

Several apartment buildings, commercial enterprises, cars, and medical and educational facilities were allegedly damaged.

Damage was also reported in the nearby village of Dubovoye, Gladkov said on his Telegram channel.

The governor did not specify whether the damage and casualties resulted from direct hits or falling fragments of downed projectiles.

Belgorod Oblast borders Ukraine's Sumy, Kharkiv, and Luhansk oblasts. Claims of rocket or drone attacks against the region have become a common occurrence in recent months.

Russia reportedly often uses Belgorod Oblast as a launching ground for cross-border missile strikes against Ukraine.
