Ukraine strikes Russian apartment building, local governor says

Russia’s official TASS news agency said at least five people were injured.

LONDON — A 10-story residential building in Belgorod, Russia, was hit overnight by a Ukrainian missile, a local governor said.

“The city and region of Belgorod suffered a massive attack by the Ukrainian armed forces,” Vyacheslav Gladkov, governor of the Belgorod region, said in a message on Telegram.

The Ukrainian Tochka-U missile that struck the building was one of several missiles launched by Ukraine overnight, the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement. It is not clear whether the missile hit the building as a target or whether the damage was caused by fragments of a downed missile, the ministry said.

Russia’s official TASS news agency said at least five people were injured, adding that the number of casualties was likely to rise.

Ukrainian military officials did not immediately comment on the claims, which could not immediately be verified.

In the photos, a central part of the Kharkovskaya Gora apartment building appeared to have been completely destroyed, with the remaining building lying on either side of a breach.
