Russia evacuates two border villages, accuses Kyiv of shelling

MOSCOW — The governor of a region in southern Russia bordering Ukraine says two villages had been evacuated after one was shelled by Ukrainian forces.

The governor of the Belgorod region, Vyacheslav Gladkov, writes on Telegram that the village of Spodaryushino close to the border “came under shelling from the Ukrainian side.”

No one was injured, but the authorities had “temporarily removed residents” from the village and another nearby “to ensure security.”
