This was reported in the Command of the Air Force of Ukraine’s Armed Forces.
“Today at 2.30 PM, the State Border Service of Ukraine received information that Russian planes entered the territory of Ukraine, and turned over Ukrainian settlements of Horodyshche and Tumen’, after which they inflicted a fire damage on the settlement of Kopani (Belarus).

The Command of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine stated that this is a provocation aimed at drawing the Armed Forces of the Republic of Belarus into the war with Ukraine.
State Border Guard Service of Ukraine: “The enemy attacked Belarusian territory on the border with Ukraine.
Assault aircraft SU, with a flight into Ukraine from Belarus, carried out the bombing of Ukrainian territory and then inflicted air strikes on the territory of Belarus.
