According to Ukrainian intelligence, combat clashes occurred near the village of Terebreno in the Belgorod region of Russia, resulting in losses for Russian forces.

“The Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine confirms that clashes occurred near the village of Terebreno in Russia Belgorod Oblast. As a result of an attack carried out by opponents of the Kremlin regime, a platoon stronghold of Russian forces was destroyed,” Ukraine’s military intelligence reported.

The Main Intelligence Directorate did not explain who the’ opponents of the Kremlin regime’ were. However, they noted that the unexpected attack on the positions of the Russian army caused panic among the personnel of the local garrison. Specifically, following orders from Russian commanders, chaotic artillery fire was opened on surrounding villages.

The governor of Belgorod Oblast, Vyacheslav Gladkov, also confirmed that a firefight occurred on the border of the village of Terebreno. Later, he reported minor damage to civilian infrastructure and specified no injured civilians.

On 12 December, fighters from the Freedom of Russia volonteer legion, who fight on Ukraine’s side, destroyed the Murom-P long-range visual reconnaissance complex in Russia’s Belgorod Oblast. They did this using a drone. The legion has already conducted several raids in Russian regions bordering Ukraine.
