The Kremlin is concerned about the situation in Belgorod, Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov told CNN in a regular call with journalists on Wednesday.
“We are indeed concerned about this situation, shelling of civilian objects continues there,” Peskov said.
“In this case, too, by the way, we have not heard a single word of condemnation from any one from the collective West, so far. The situation is rather alarming. Measures are being taken.”
Some context: His comments come after the town of Shebekino in Russia's Belgorod region was hit by a "massive strike," injuring four people, Gov. Vyacheslav Gladkov said on Telegram Wednesday.
Eight apartment buildings, four private homes, a school and two administrative buildings were all damaged in the shelling, according to Gladkov.
Gladkov also said that children will be evacuated out of Shebekino and Grayvoron, with the first 300 taken today to Voronezh.
