On the morning of March 14, the Russian Ministry of Defense accused Ukraine of allegedly attacking two regions with 14 drones. Later, Belgorod reported a second attack

It noted that Russian air defense forces allegedly intercepted and destroyed 11 drones in the Belgorod region and another 3 in the Kursk region.

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.

The town of Graivoron also allegedly came under fire. According to preliminary data from Russia, there is allegedly one casualty. A multi-storey building and a private house were also damaged.

Russian army is forced to deploy troops to Belgorod, Kursk regions

The Russian army has deployed reserves to the Belgorod and Kursk regions and is actively trying to push out Russian paramilitary volunteer units.

Alexei Baranovsky, a volunteer of the Freedom of Russia Legion, said this on Espreso TV.

"The village of Tetkino is located in the Kursk region. Now there is fighting around it. Today is a rather difficult day. The Russian army has finally realized what is happening now and in the first hours of our entry into the Kursk region. They moved additional reserves there and are actively trying to push our units out of the region. The same thing is happening in the Belgorod region. The epicenter of the events is the town of Graivoron and its surroundings.”

Ukrainian intelligence representative Andriy Yusov also confirmed that fighting is taking place in the Kursk and Belgorod regions of Russia, where the Freedom of Russia Legion, the Russian Volunteer Corps (RVC) and the Siberian Battalion are based.

Patriot systems continue to fulfill their tasks

Anti-aircraft missile units, including Patriot, continue to perform their tasks. This was stated by the Commander of the Ukrainian Air Force, Lieutenant General Mykola Oleshchuk.

The Air Force is using all available means and tools to counter enemy tactical aircraft, keep them at bay, and, if necessary, destroy them.

"I assure you that anti-aircraft missile units, including Patriot, continue to perform tasks in designated areas of the frontline territories. Our pilots are also performing combat missions every day, heroically destroying the occupation forces," he added.
