Anti-Putin Russian units launch attacks from Ukraine

Anti-Putin Russian units launch attacks from Ukraine

The two anti-Kremlin armed groups, the Freedom Corps of Russia and the Siberian Battalion, say they carried out attacks in the Kursk region.

At least two Russian anti-Putin armed units say they carried out attacks in Russia from Ukraine. These are the “Freedom Corps of Russia” and the “Siberian Battalion” who spread this information via social media. They are made up of Russians fighting against Kremlin leader Vladimir Putin. The information cannot be verified initially.

Kursk Governor confirms the attack

The Freedom Corps for Russia militia said on the Telegram application that its fighters destroyed a Russian armored military vehicle in the town of Tyukino in the Kursk region. Kursk Governor Roman Starovoit confirmed the attack and noted that one person was slightly injured, but denied any “penetration” by the attackers. It was not initially possible to contact other official bodies in Russia for comment.

A Ukrainian military intelligence spokesman told Ukrainian media that the groups carried out the operation on Russian territory independently of Ukraine. A third group, the Russian Volunteer Corps, is also involved. The Freedom Corps of Russia and the Russian Volunteer Corps have already taken charge of other previous cross-border operations.
