Railway lines in Russia’s Belgorod region, near the Ukrainian border have been damaged, regional governor Vyacheslav Gladkov said via Telegram messenger on April 12.
“Railways (were) damaged in Shebekino district of Belgorod oblast; no casualties,” said Gladkov.
“Only rails are destroyed; repair crew is on site; (I) will report later on what caused (the damage).”
The Belgorod region has a 500 kilometer-long border with Ukraine. The damage may hinder Russian redeployment efforts from Ukraine’s northern regions to the east of the country, where Russia is planning a fresh offensive.
