Russian warplane bombs one of its own cities

After a powerful explosion that injured two women and damaged several buildings, Russia admitted to accidentally hitting one of its cities in Ukraine.

The Russian Defence Ministry told state-owned Tass that a Su-34 supersonic fighter-bomber jet struck Belgorod late Thursday with “aviation ammunition”.

The Ministry of Defence did not confirm the type of weapon fired.

The statement stated that “as a Sukhoi Su-34 aircraft was flying above the city of Belgorod, there was an accident discharge of aviation ammunition.”


According to Tass, the defence ministry confirmed that some buildings had been damaged and said an investigation was already underway.

Vyacheslav gladkov, regional governor, announced that two women had been injured in the explosion and declared a state-of-emergency.

Mr Gladkov reported on Telegram that there was a 20 metre (65 foot) wide crater on one of the major streets.

The blast also damaged four cars and four apartments, he said.

The video footage shows concrete piles on the street and several damaged cars, as well as a broken window in a building.

The video shows a car upside-down on the roof of an establishment.

Since the beginning of the conflict in February 2022, Ukraine has targeted several areas of southern Russia for their fuel and ammunition storage.

In July, Gladkov stated that a Ukrainian missile strike on Belgorod left at least four people dead.

The deputy ambassador of Russia to the UN denied that his country was committing war crimes by mass-transferring children.

Dmitry Polyanskiy said to Sky News that “of course, it is not a crime of war.” We have been accused of stealing the children, but we are saving them from the Ukrainian Army.

“[This] campaign is nothing more than another smear against Russia that is exploiting children in war.”

It was after Sky News interviewed a group orphans who were illegally taken to Russia and transferred at gunpoint. They spoke about their amazing escape and what it’s like to live in institutions.
