Bryansk region governor calls for Kharkiv region to join Russia
Vyacheslav Gladkov, the governor of the Bryansk region, has called for the annexation of the Kharkiv region to Russia to stop the shelling of his region
Gladkov made the statement in an interview with a Russian propaganda TV channel.
According to him, in order to solve the security problem of Russia’s Bryansk region, it is necessary to annex the Kharkiv region.
"Kharkiv should be annexed to the Belgorod region. The Kharkiv region is the best way to solve the problems of shelling in the Belgorod region," Gladkov said.
He complained that the Bryansk region is actually living in a war, and in addition to the recent raid by the Russian Volunteer Corps and the Freedom of Russia Legion, five sabotage and reconnaissance groups have allegedly entered the region.
"We are living in a de facto war. Whether people like it or not, we are at war. The enemy enters, we had five subversive reconnaissance groups before the recent events in Grayvoron," said Gladkov.
On May 22, the Freedom of Russia Legion and the Russian Volunteer Corps announced that they had liberated the settlements of Kozinka and Gora-Podol in the Belgorod region as part of the creation of a demilitarized zone on the border with Russia, and that advanced units had entered Grayvoron. A counterterrorism operation was introduced in the region and nuclear munitions were evacuated.
On May 22, Russian media reported that administrative buildings in Belgorod had been hit by drones, including the FSB and the Interior Ministry, and that drones had also been used to strike administrative buildings in Grayvoron and Borisovka.
On May 23, the anti-terrorist operation was canceled in the Belgorod region. After that, the Russian Defense Ministry announced the alleged killing of 70 "terrorists." The RVC claims to have no losses.
