A Russian official in the southern region of the Belgorod on the border with Ukraine said Tuesday that strikes by Kyiv’s forces had left 2,000 people with electricity.

“The Ukrainian armed forces fired at a substation in Shebekino. More than 2,000 residents have now been cut off from electricity. There are no victims or injured,” the region’s governor Viatcheslav Gladkov said in a post on social media.
