Several days of shelling reported in Russian town near Ukrainian border


A Russian town near the Ukrainian border reported three days of shelling, with Tuesday’s attack allegedly targeting a military base.

Residents of the town of Klintsy in the Bryansk region, less than 50 kilometers from Ukraine, said they saw a helicopter hovering over the base before firing two shots and fleeing.

“A shell hit part of a military base and part of an apartment complex,” local Telegram channel Podslushano Klintsy (Overheard in Klintsy) said without citing sources.

Footage released later showed rescue workers and men in military fatigues surveying the scene of the attacks.

“A woman who was in her yard at the time had her leg blown off,” the account reported, adding that the blast blew out the windows of nearby homes.

Residents reported brief power outages and water cuts in parts of Klintsy.

The latest incident, which could not immediately be verified, follows reports of explosions in neighboring Klintsovsky and Starodubsky districts of the Bryansk region on Monday and Saturday.

Saturday’s attack reportedly caused a small fire at the military base, according to Russian independent investigative newspaper iStories.

Bryansk Governor Alexander Bogomaz said four people were injured in the rural locality of Zaymishche in southern Klintsy and were receiving medical assistance.

Klintsy is home to the 28th Separate Motor Rifle Bridge, part of a motorized infantry division and the 20th Guards Combined Arms Army of the Russian Ground Forces.

Missile strikes on Russian territory increased after Moscow’s forces withdrew from Kyiv in late March and Ukrainian forces carried out successful counterattacks towards the Russian border.

At least three Russian civilians were killed in the reported attacks, local governors said.

One of the staging grounds for the invasion of Ukraine in February, the Bryansk region and other neighboring areas were under a increased terrorist threat level since April.

Ukraine has not claimed responsibility for the attacks on Russian territory while not formally denying being behind them.
