The Russian Belgorod region, which is bordering Ukraine was hit by strikes on Sunday, which left around four people wounded in the recent attacks in the region, Russian officials added.
After visiting the family, the regional governor, Vyacheslav Gladkov took it to Telegram on Sunday, “As a result of shelling in Belgorod, three people from the same family were injured.”
Two of them were hospitalized.
In a separate post, the governor added that his administration recorded “damage in over 20 homes” in the Belgorod region, and that “a grandpa suffered a concussion.”
Gladkov has posted images showing damages, smashed windows and craters after strikes in the city and in the region of Belgorod.
At least 16 explosions were reported in the city of Belgorod, Russia’s investigative committee, which investigates serious crimes, said Sunday.
The city of 330,000, around 40 kilometres (25 miles) from the Ukrainian border, had until rarely been hit, unlike the surrounding area.
The attacks come a day following an oil depot was hit in the same area.
Russia has made a claim about an increase in artillery and missile strikes on its territories bordering Ukraine last week.
On Friday, strikes hit an electric substation in Belgorod, causing power cuts, after other strikes on Thursday.
On Saturday, two gunmen attacked a military training ground in the Belgorod region, killing 11 people who had volunteered to fight in Ukraine, in what Russia’s defence ministry said was a “terrorist” attack.
