Since the beginning of Russia's hostilities in Ukraine, the village of Zhuravlevka, like other settlements in the region, has been shelled more than once.

The day before, Gladkov called on them to temporarily leave their homes.

In addition to the region, the yellow level has been preserved in the Bryansk and Kursk regions bordering Ukraine and in the north of Crimea.
