(Reuters) - A Ukrainian air attack on Russia's Belgorod region injured eight people and damaged scores of residential buildings and cars, the governor of the region bordering with Ukraine said on Thursday.

Among the wounded is an 11-year-old girl who was taken to a hospital, Vyacheslav Gladkov, the governor said on the Telegram messaging app.

About 34 flats in 19 apartment buildings were damaged, as well as three dozen cars in the city of Belgorod, the region's administrative centre, Gladkov added.

Russia's air defence systems destroyed 15 rockets launched from the RM-70 Vampir system, and one drone over the region, Russia's defence ministry said.

Three drones were also downed over Russia's Kursk region and two over the Bryansk region, the ministry said in a statement on the Telegram messaging app. All regions border Ukraine.

Reuters could not independently verify the reports. There was no immediate comment from Ukraine. Kyiv has said often that destroying military, energy and transport infrastructure inside Russia undermines Moscow's overall war efforts.
