A Ukrainian drone strike on Belgorod on April 12 damaged an administrative building of a "resource supply company," injuring two people, Belgorod Oblast Governor Vyacheslav Gladkov claimed.

The Russian independent outlet Meduza reported that the building in question belongs to Russia's state-owned energy giant Gazprom. The outlet published the location and a picture of the damaged building, citing local Telegram channels.

The building appears to have suffered damage to its facade.

Russia's Defense Ministry alleged that on April 12, its forces downed nine Ukrainian drones over Belgorod Oblast.

Gladkov said that firefighters quickly extinguished the fire, and the two injured people were taken to the hospital.

The Kyiv Independent could not verify the claims. Ukrainian officials have not publicly commented on the incident.

The news comes only one day after Russia launched a massive strike against Ukraine's energy infrastructure, which hit Ukrainian gas storage facilities and completely destroyed a thermal power plant.

Russian forces have been conducting a campaign against Ukraine's critical infrastructure since March, hoping to knock out the country's power grid amid dwindling air defense ammunition.

Macron: Ukraine must be allowed to strike bases on Russian territory from which missiles are fired.

"We think that we should allow them to neutralize military sites where missiles are fired, from where... Ukraine is attacked," Macron said at a press conference with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz. "If we tell them (Ukraine) that you are not allowed to target the place from which missiles are fired, we are in fact telling them that we are providing you with weapons but you cannot defend yourself."
