Ukrainian drone drops explosive on Russian border checkpoint – governor


Four people are injured after the attack in Russia’s Bryansk Region, Aleksandr Bogomaz says

A Ukrainian drone dropped an explosive device onto a border checkpoint in Russia’s Bryansk Region on Tuesday, injuring four people, according to the local governor.

The wounded have been hospitalized with light and moderate injuries, Aleksandr Bogomaz said.

The Troebortnoye checkpoint was hit by a quadcopter UAV, the governor wrote on Telegram.

The same checkpoint had already been targeted with mortar attacks by the Ukrainian forces in April and May.

In late June, two Ukrainian kamikaze drones smashed into an oil refinery in southern Russia’s Rostov Region, damaging the facility and causing a large fire.
