Ukraine launched a series of drone and missile attacks on Russia over the past 24 hours, killing at least 10 people, Russian officials said on Saturday.

The Russian emergency ministry said one child was among those killed in Belgorod, a city less than 50 kilometers from the Ukrainian border. Another 45 people, including four children, were injured, according to the ministry.

On Saturday morning, the Russian defense ministry said that it had shot down 32 Ukrainian drones over border areas as well as the regions of Oryol and Moscow further north.

The Ukrainian strikes come after large-scale Russian air attacks on Friday. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said on Saturday that the death toll from Friday’s airstrikes had risen to 39.

Russian local officials had said earlier on Saturday that Ukrainian strikes on border regions had killed one man and two children in Belgorod and another child in the Bryansk region. “The Ukrainian Armed Forces shelled the center of Belgorod. According to preliminary information, there are two dead children,” Belgorod Governor Vyacheslav Gladkov said on Telegram.
