The occupiers dropped air bombs on the territory of Northern Slobozhanshchina at least 38 times, – Washington Post

At least 38 Russian cruise (glider) bombs fell on the Belgorod region of the Russian Federation in the period from April 2023 to April 2024.

The Washington Post writes about this with a link to a certain “internal Russian document”.

As noted, most of these shells did not detonate. They were found by civilians — foresters, farmers or residents of villages near Belgorod. In most cases, the Russian Ministry of Defense did not know when the bombs were launched, meaning some of them could have been there for several days.

According to the document, at least four bombs fell on the city of Belgorod, and seven more were found in the surrounding area. Most of all — 11 bombs — fell in the border region of Grayvoron, where part could not be recovered due to a “difficult operational situation.”

As WP notes, the received document was intercepted by Ukrainian intelligence and handed over to journalists. The document contains a spreadsheet of incidents with a link to emergency decrees for bomb removal and evacuations and appears to have been created by the Belgorod city emergency department.

However, the Russian publication Astra confirmed that many of the incidents ;the documents coincide with those collected from local authorities and reports in local media. And the people mentioned as witnesses are local residents.

However, according to Astra’s own calculations, Russia accidentally dropped more than a hundred bombs on its own territory, as well as on the occupied areas in the region. in the east of Ukraine over the last four months.
