“Svoboda” radio reported that since Thursday morning, conflicting information about the shelling in the Belgorod region, bordering Ukraine, has been coming. A number of Telegram channels, including pro-Kremlin sources, reported that a checkpoint near Shebekino was attacked by tanks.

On the same day, the Ministry of Defense of Russia announced that “the goal of carrying out a terrorist attack against the civilians of Shebekino was not achieved”, and that the attempt to enter Russia from the territory of Ukraine was repelled. According to information, the opposing side used tanks.

Fighters of the “Russian Volunteer Corps” fighting on the side of Ukraine published a video and announced the second phase of the attack on Russian territory. They entered the Graivoron district of the province a few days ago. It is not known where the video was shot.

The Corps reported that the Department of Internal Affairs in the city of Shebekino was fired from “Grad” equipment. The information cannot be verified.

Gladkov wrote that the city was shelled by Ukrainian troops, the mortars hit the dormitory, the local administration, and the dormitory was set on fire.

The authorities of the region also reported that several settlements in the region were being shelled. RIA Novosti reports that on June 1, 11 people were taken to the hospital in Belgorod region, four of them are in serious condition.

The Ukrainian military has not commented on reports of shelling of Russian territory and possible clashes.

Earlier, there were shootings in Belgorod, and Kiev said that it was not involved, that the volunteer corps was not part of the Ukrainian army, but was made up of Russian citizens.

BBC reported that people are being evacuated from Shebekino, which has a population of 40,000 and is located five kilometers from the border with Kharkiv region.
