As OBOZ.UA previously reported, on the evening of March 16, loud explosions were heard in Belgorod, just as the Freedom of Russia legion announced strikes on the positions of Russian troops in the city. In the morning, the Belgorod region also complained of shelling.

Due to the military operations of Russian rebels, which began on March 12, local residents are being evacuated en masse from the Belgorod region. Russia is deploying additional military equipment there. Volunteers announced an additional green corridor for civilians.

On March 17, fighters of the Siberian Battalion said that they had entered the village of Gorkovsky near Belgorod, near the border with Ukraine, together with volunteers from Ichkeria.

Commenting on the events in Russia, the head of the Main Intelligence Directorate, Kyrylo Budanov, expressed confidence that the Russian volunteers do not intend to stop and that Ukraine will help them. According to Budanov, the rebels will achieve their goal as they "solve their internal issues."
