Moscow-THE death toll in the partial collapse of a 10-story residential apartment building in Russia’s southwestern city of Belgorod following a Ukrainian attack on May 12 has risen to 15, the Russian Emergencies Ministry said.

“Rescuers found another body. In all, 15 bodies have been already recovered from the rubble,” the statement issued through the Ministry’s Telegram channel on Monday said.

Belgorod and its suburbs came under massive shelling by the Ukrainian armed forces earlier on May 12. Fragments of a downed Tochka-U tactical missile damaged a 10-story residential building, causing one of its sections to collapse. (Anadolu)
