MADRID, 17 May. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The Russian authorities have denounced this Tuesday an attack with "large-caliber weapons" against a town located in the Kursk region, near the border with Ukraine, and have stressed that the incident has resulted in material damage to a school and several houses, but without victims.
The governor of the region, Roman Staravoit, has indicated in a message on his Telegram account that the attack has been carried out against Aleksivska around 5:00 a.m. (local time). "Three houses have been damaged, as well as a car parked near one of them and the school building," he added.
"Fortunately, there are no casualties. The shots have been quickly suppressed by open fire by our border guards. Experts are already analyzing the details of the incident," Staravoit concluded.
The Kursk and Belgorod regions have repeatedly denounced attacks by the Ukrainian Army, within the framework of the war unleashed on February 24 by the invasion order given by Russian President Vladimir Putin, who days before had recognized independence of the self-proclaimed republics of Donetsk and Lugansk.
