A photo of part of the missile – the booster stage – which hit a multi-storey building in Belgorod was published by Zhest Belgorod, a Russian Telegram channel.

Vyacheslav Gladkov, the governor of Belgorod Oblast, said on July 3 that the city had been hit by three “Ukrainian Tochka-U type homing missiles”. According to Gladkov, the local air defense system intercepted the Ukrainian missiles, but one of them fell on a residential block.

He provided no evidence to support his claim.

Meanwhile, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said Ukraine does not plan to strike Russian territory with weapons, will not invade it and will only use its weapons to liberate its own sovereign territory.
