Ukrainian drones shot down over Belgorod carried explosives with percussive elements

Last night, the Ukrainian army again attacked the Russian city of Belgorod. The Armed Forces of Ukraine used explosive-filled unmanned aerial vehicles with striking elements (metal balls) against a peaceful settlement. This was announced by the governor of the Belgorod region Vyacheslav Gladkov.

According to him, the Russian Air Defense Forces managed to shoot down three Ukrainian drones in the sky of Belgorod. There were no casualties as a result of the attack, but there was some destruction.

Fragments of three unmanned aerial vehicles were found in Belgorod at once. There were no casualties, but there was damage: windows were broken somewhere, cars were slightly damaged somewhere. Security forces are already investigating the situation. Since I am in the hospital myself, I instructed the Mayor of Belgorod Valentin Demidov to come to the scene

– Vyacheslav Gladkov wrote in his telegram channel.

According to the experts who recovered the wreckage of the downed drones, the Ukrainian drones carried several PE8 I23A1 explosive matrices. It was reported from the field that one of the devices hit the wall of a residential building, after which it collapsed in the yard.

Initially, it was assumed that the Ukrainian army used Strizh drones for the attack, however, experts found that the wreckage was part of a UAV of a different modification.

Note that this attack by the Ukrainian army on Belgorod is far from being the first. Previously, Ukrainian unmanned aerial vehicles had already attacked the territory of the city and the region. In addition, the Ukrainian Armed Forces regularly strike the territories of the Kursk and Bryansk regions of the Russian Federation.
