Abandoned by Putin:
Why Belgorod residents enduring Ukrainian missile strikes feel Russia has turned its back on them
Local group chats in the Russian border region of Belgorod are inundated with the same question over and over again after missile strikes: “Is everyone in one piece?” Group chats have become the best way for residents to find out if anyone they know has been injured — or worse. Once you have the all-clear, you can breathe a sigh of relief until the next siren goes off.
Sometimes non-locals write to Belgorod group chats, though they often appear not to have grasped the severity of the situation and their questions and comments seem naive to locals. To them, a bombed-out city is something they’d see in a movie or on the news, not a daily reality they have to face.
Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine two years ago, a total of 134 Belgorod residents have been killed in shelling, missile and drone strikes. On 15 March, Belgorod came under fire from Ukrainian cluster munitions, killing several people and leading Belgorod Governor Vyacheslav Gladkov to announce the closure of schools and shops in the city, as well as in certain parts of the wider region near the Ukrainian border.
The city is under siege from multiple missile launchers. Such cluster munitions increase the risk of civilian deaths and were banned by a 2008 UN convention to which neither Russia nor Ukraine are signatories.
Novaya Gazeta Europe spoke to several Belgorod residents about their daily lives under fierce shelling and how they feel about being trapped in the conflict between Russia and Ukraine but of little concern to either.
‘I don’t leave the house, even to go to the store’
“You can cut the tension here with a knife. People always have their phones within reach. They monitor social media channels constantly to seek out information,” said Belgorod citizen Artyom. “Life goes on but it’s frightening. You don’t know when or where missiles will land, whether to run to a shelter or to your house, whether to go to work or not.”
Anya, another local, is able to compare the situation in Belgorod to that in other cities that came under attack as she was in Ukraine’s second city Kharkiv when the war started. Anya was convinced that the situation in Belgorod is worse than it was in Kharkiv, as during the first days of the war, Kharkiv’s military infrastructure was targeted rather than its civilians. “My life was not directly threatened in Kharkiv. It all seemed rather distant from me,” she said. --->READ MORE HERE
