Children to Be Еvacuated From Russia’s Belgorod Region After Ukrainian Shelling


The Belgorod region has suffered repeated shelling from Ukraine since the start of Russia’s special military operation with the districts of Shebekinsky and Graivoronsky, in particular, coming under an incessant barrage from Ukrainian forces.

The number of casualties caused by overnight shelling in the Shebekinsky and Graivoronsky districts of the Belgorod region has risen to five.

The Governor of Belgorod Region, Vyacheslav Gladkov, has provided details of the incident.

“The Grad shells smashed windows, tore up the facades and roofs of eight apartment blocks, four private houses, a school and two administrative buildings. One shop was completely burnt out. Twelve vehicles were damaged in various ways. Administration staff are now starting a door-to-door survey of the area. Restoration work will begin today. There’s a lot to do. We will try to do it as quickly as possible,” Gladkov said.

The governor specified that the man taken to hospital received shrapnel wounds to the neck and back and is in serious condition now, and the woman got shrapnel wounds to the arm and forearm. Another two woman refused from hospitalization and get help on the spot.

Children will be moved from Belgorod’s Shebekinsky and Graivoronsky districts from Wednesday, he said.

Earlier, he said that a group of schoolchildren from the Shebekinsky district would go to the Landysh children’s health camp at the invitation of Alexander Gusev, the governor of the Voronezh region. A total of 300 children from Belgorod will stay there during the first shift.
