Russia: Anti-Putin Russians say they launched a cross-border attack from Ukraine
An apparent attack on Russian soil by anti-Putin Russians, fighting in support of Ukraine, has sparked confusion and anger in Moscow.
Residents of the settlements under attack in Russia’s Belgorod region have been resettled in other areas as authorities continue “clearing the territory” after the cross-border incursion that launched in Ukraine, officials said on Tuesday.
One civilian died as a result of the fighting, according to regional governor Vyacheslav Gladkov.
But questions linger about the group behind the attack, how it took place, and what it means for the war.
