This was reported by a Ukrainian military source in an interview with Sky News.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, the military source told: "A Ukrainian Air Force (UAF) mission has struck a Russian command node in Belgorod.

It was not immediately known what type of munition was used in the attack, including whether it had been a Western weapon.

"Whilst damage assessment is still occurring, it is confirmed as a direct hit. This is the first UAF munition delivered against a target within Russia."

The Russian defense ministry said its air defenses had shot down a number of Ukrainian drones in the Belgorod region. It was not clear whether this was part of the same attack.

  • On June 8, a Russian Su-57 multirole fighter jet was hit at the Akhtubinsk airfield in the Astrakhan region of the Russian Federation, located 589 kilometers from the contact line.
