Serbian basketball fans hung a banner with the text “Belgorod, we are with you” during the match of the 19th round of the Euroleague regular championship, as was seen in the footage of the online broadcast of the event on the competition’s official website. The teams “Crvena Zvezda” and “Partizany” took to the field.
The meeting took place in Belgrade. A Russian-language poster was unfurled in the stands before the starting whistle. The Serbs greeted him with applause.
Earlier, two people were injured as a result of the shelling of Belgorod by the Ukrainian army. The governor of the region, Vyacheslav Gladkov, noted that two men received shrapnel wounds and received medical assistance. The Russian Ministry of Defense did not comment on the information.
In addition, a video recording of the arrival of a Ukrainian Armed Forces shell into the courtyard of a residential building was published online. The shot captured an explosion that occurred next to parked cars on Makarenko Street; as a result of the impact, the alarms of the cars parked in the yard went off. The street was drowned in clouds of smoke.
Before this, a missile warning siren was activated in the city. Gladkov called on residents to take shelter. Shortly before this, the air defense system shot down four air targets over Belgorod. According to the governor, one person was injured and is in serious condition.
