The death toll from the attack on the city of Belgorod, which Russia attributes to the Ukrainian Armed Forces, has risen to 14 dead and 108 injured. A spokesperson for the Ministry of Emergency Services reported this to Tass. «According to verified data, twelve adults and two children were killed in Belgorod. Another 108 people, including 15 children, were injured,” he explained.
«The responsibility for the terrorist attack» in Belgorod «falls on the EU countries that continue to supply weapons to the Kiev terrorists who use cluster munitions against civilians» and on «Great Britain which, in coordination with the United States, incites the Kiev regime to terrorist actions, realizing that the Ukrainian counteroffensive has failed.” The spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry told Tass Maria Zakharova.
Russia has warned that the attack on the city of Belgorod will not go “unpunished”. The Russian Defense Ministry reported on Telegram that it had intercepted two missiles and “most” of the rockets fired at the city.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov announced that President Vladimir Putin was informed of the attack, attributed to Ukrainian forces, on the Russian city of Belgorod. Ria Novosti reports it.
A UN Security Council meeting will be held this evening after the Ukrainian attack on the Russian city of Belgorod, which left 14 dead and 108 injured. This was reported by Moscow, which had requested the meeting.
