US Rejects Russia’s Accusation Over Armed Incursion Of Its Territory
US rejects and distances itself from an incursion into Russia which Moscow says ended in the defeat of armed insurgents who entered from Ukraine
Parts of the border region of Belgorod came under attack on Monday,
More so, in one of the largest cross-border raids since Russia invaded its neighbour last year.
Russia later released pictures of abandoned or damaged western military vehicles, including us-made Humvees.
Russia says 70 attackers were killed, and has insisted the fighters were Ukrainian.
But kyiv denies involvement – and two Russian paramilitary groups opposed to Russian president Vladimir Putin say they were behind the incursion.
The us insisted it did not “encourage or enable strikes inside of Russia”.
In a later development, Vyacheslav Gladkov said on Tuesday evening that
Belgorod had come under fresh attack from a drone which dropped an explosive device and damaged a car.
