Ukraine appears to strike back for first time with missile hit on Russian military camp

Ukrainian forces may have struck back for the first time inside Russia with an artillery strike Tuesday.

Ukrainian forces may have struck back inside Russia on Tuesday with their first significant shelling.

A Ukrainian missile appeared to have hit a temporary Russian military encampment outside Belgorod, in Russia’s village of Krasny Oktyabr, about 40 miles from the Ukrainian city of Kharkiv,  said the Russian state-run news agency Tass.

Regional Gov. Vyacheslav Gladkov said there were no casualties, but an emergency service worker told Tass that 4 Russian soldiers were injured.

Video posted online from two local Belgorod news outlets appeared to show ammunition blowing up, but the source of the explosion could not be immediately confirmed outside of Tass.

If verified, the strike would apparently be the first that struck a military target inside Russia and wounded soldiers. Last week, Tass said two men were hurt when a shell from Ukraine exploded in the same area.

  1. I am willing to bet a case of beer that there were more casualties than the rats are admitting.
    At any rate, this is great news. All that ammo won’t be available for the cockroach army. I think that the Ukrainians knew exactly where to strike. Maybe they have an informant or maybe a special ops team or teams in mafia land. Well done!
