Shell hits military camp in Russia, most likely on Ukrainian side – Tass


March 29 (Reuters) – A shell hit a temporary Russian military camp near the border with Ukraine on Tuesday evening, Tass news agency said and quoted a source as saying preliminary data showed it had been fired on the Ukrainian side.

Tass released the report shortly after a senior local official reported a series of explosions outside the town of Belgorod, near the border with Ukraine.

Video posted online by two local Belgorod news outlets appeared to show munitions exploding in the distance, but Reuters was not immediately able to confirm this was the case.

Tass quoted an emergency services source as saying four people were injured in the blast.

Belgorod Governor Vyacheslav Gladkov said earlier in an online post that the explosions occurred near the village of Krasny Oktyabr, about 30 km (19 miles) southwest of Belgorod. He didn’t give a reason for the outbursts and promised an update later.

Belgorod is 80 km (50 miles) north of the Ukrainian city of Kharkiv, which Russian forces have heavily shelled in recent weeks.
