Earlier, Gladkov reported 11 wounded, four of whom are in serious condition.

Nearly 15,000 people have been left without electricity, he added, predicting that power will be restored in 5-6 hours.

Shebekino, with a population of about 40 thousand people, is located twenty kilometers from the border with Ukraine.

Russia, which invaded Ukraine on February 24, reported in the middle of this month a significant increase in Ukrainian shelling on its border areas - primarily Belgorod, but also Kursk and Bryansk, BTA noted, referring to AFP.

Authorities said recently that an oil facility near Belgorod and a power plant in the city had been hit.
