At least one person was killed and another four injured in Ukrainian shelling of the Russian border post at Logachevka, the governor of Russia’s southwestern Belgorod region said Monday.

“Sadly, there is one dead — a Ukrainian citizen born in 1942. And also four slightly injured” including “three Ukrainians,” Vyacheslav Gladkov stated on Telegram, indicating the border post was shelled from Ukraine.

“According to preliminary information, residential dwellings were partially destroyed and cars and power lines damaged,” Gladkov added.

He said emergency services cut gas and electricity supplies following the shelling.

The governor’s statement came with Ukrainian forces having in recent days announced major territorial gains against Russian forces, notably around the northeastern region of Kharkiv which juxtaposes Belgorod across the border.

Kiev said Saturday it had recaptured the city of Kupyansk, some 50 kilometres (31 miles) south of Logachevka.
