Ukrainian saboteurs stage attack on Russian territory – governor

Raiders killed one local resident and injured a ten-year-old child, according to an official

A group of Ukrainian raiders has attacked a vehicle across the border in Russia’s Bryansk Region, killing one resident and injuring a child, local governor Aleksandr Bogomaz said on Thursday.

Writing on Telegram, Bogomaz stated that “today a sabotage-reconnaissance group intruded from Ukraine” in the village of Lyubechane, which lies directly on the Russian-Ukrainian border. 

“Saboteurs fired at a moving car. As a result of the attack, one local resident was killed, with a ten-year-old child wounded,” he added. The child has been taken to hospital, the official said.   


Russian forces “are taking all the necessary measures to eliminate the saboteur group,” Bogomaz added, without providing details on how many Ukrainian personnel had taken part in the attack.

The group is said to have attacked a school bus and killed its driver. Other unconfirmed reports indicated that the children were rescued by eyewitnesses. A passing car picked up three children, including a wounded boy who was shot in the back, reports claimed.

Unconfirmed reports on social media suggested that the region was also attacked by two Ukrainian groups with a combined strength of 50 people, who took an unspecified number of residents hostage in the village of Sushany. It was also reported that security forces are confronting the attackers. 

There has been no official confirmation of the claims, although Bogomaz noted that Kiev had staged a drone attack on Sushany.
