Kiev’s latest attempted incursion repelled – Russian military

Ukraine has suffered over 1,500 casualties in a series of border raids this week, according to Moscow

Russian military and security forces intercepted the latest Ukrainian attempt to breach the border on Thursday, resulting in multiple fatalities on the Ukrainian side, Moscow’s Defense Ministry reported on Friday morning.

The latest operation involved Ukrainian commandos and foreign mercenaries attempting to infiltrate Russia, according to the ministry.

The group of up to 30 fighters arrived in helicopters at a location about a kilometer from the border, and moved on foot towards the village of Kozinka in Belgorod Region. The stealth approach worked for some time, and the troops reached the border settlement, the statement said. But they were spotted while trying to enter the village, triggering a reaction by Russian forces, including military personnel and border guards of the Federal Security Service (FSB).
