Russia has accidentally bombed one of its own villages.

This was reported by the Russian military, according to The Moscow Times. The military stated that it was due to an "abnormal discharge of aircraft ammunition." The incident occurred on Tuesday around 09:00AM local time in Petropavlovka, located approximately 150 kilometers east of the border with Ukraine.

No lives were lost in the bombing of the town, but six houses were damaged.

"An investigation into the circumstances of the incident is underway. A commission is working on-site to assess the damages and provide assistance in repairing the houses," it was reported.

According to Governor Alexander Gusev of the Voronezh region, where Petropavlovka is located, several residents of the village have been rehoused.

On Tuesday, Russia also dropped bombs over several cities in Ukraine, where a total of four people lost their lives, and 92 were injured.

The attack occurred less than 24 hours after Russian President Vladimir Putin announced an increase in the intensity of Russian attacks.

This is not the first time Russia has bombed one of its own cities. In April, a Russian fighter jet accidentally bombed Belgorod, located about 35 kilometers from the border with Ukraine. Three people were injured, and several buildings were destroyed, according to the local governor, Vyacheslav Gladkov, as reported by the BBC.
