A Russian governor claims that two villages were left without electricity after a Ukrainian attack
Two Russian villages in the Kursk region were left without electricity after Ukrainian forces allegedly threw two explosive devices at a substation, regional governor Roman Starovoit said this morning. The Russian governor states that the villages of Popovo-Lezhachi and Tetkino were left without electricity due to the attack.
One person, the Russian governor claims, who worked on the repairs ended up with minor injuries. "He is now in the hospital and the doctors are giving him all the help he needs," Russian Governor Starovoit announced on his Telegram channel.
Kursk is one of the Russian regions whose leaders claim that Ukrainian forces are increasingly attacking it. Kyiv has previously denied that it is attacking Russian territory. Reports of fires, explosions and other acts of sabotage in Russia and in Ukrainian territories controlled by Russian forces have become more frequent in recent months.
Some analysts believe that it could have something to do with the long-awaited Ukrainian counter-offensive.
