Blasts, Bombs, And Drones: Amid Carnage In Ukraine, A Shadow War On The Russian Side Of The Border https://flip.it/pjY8Xv

photos this Friday include fires at a fuel depot in Belgorod, Russia, the result of an attack by Ukrainian helicopters earlier this month; scenes from the region of Transnistria, in Moldova, where recent attacks have raised the specter of a Russian move on that country; and reminders from Bulgaria and Poland of the impact of Russia’s decision this week to cut gas deliveries to those countries.
