Meanwhile, the governor of the Kursk region, Roman Starovoit, said at about 03:40 a.m. that air defense was operating in the region.

Simultaneously, the governor of the Belgorod region, Vyacheslav Gladkov, reported that in the village of Prokhorovka, a private house's roof purportedly caught fire following an explosion, resulting in shattered windows and a damaged facade. No injuries were reported among the residents.

Another drone allegedly detonated next to the same house, and the blast wave damaged a neighboring private house, damaging the facade and fence.

Subsequently, Gladkov claimed an attack on the city of Belgorod itself, leading to the ignition of dry grass. Additionally, windows in a private residence were shattered.
