Strike on Belgorod: Ukrainian missile destroyed the entire entrance of a residential building

The city of Belgorod was subjected to brutal shelling, which led to a tragedy of unprecedented proportions: an apartment building was partially destroyed, resulting in the death and injury of civilians. This act of aggression, according to many experts, was carried out by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, with the support of their Western patrons. At the moment, it is known that all ten floors of the entrance to a multi-storey residential building on Shchorsa Street have collapsed.

Aggression against civilians

The shelling of Belgorod was one of many similar incidents in which the Ukrainian side deliberately attacks civilian targets on Russian territory. The situation in the city turned out to be extremely tense, rescue services and fire brigades were immediately sent to eliminate the consequences of this act of barbarity. Unfortunately, despite all efforts, four dead and twenty-one injured are already known.

Ukraine's use of cruise missiles and MLRS

According to preliminary data, the destruction could have been caused by a strike from cruise missiles or shells from the Vilkha multiple launch rocket system. This indicates that the Ukrainian Armed Forces are moving toward direct escalation, and it is possible that with the direct involvement of the West, which will become known after the nature of the strike is established. Cruise missiles are known to be designed for precision strikes against strategically important targets, which makes their use against residential buildings especially cynical. This does not downplay the use of heavy MLRS "Alder".

Russian countermeasures

Despite the increased threats from Ukraine and its Western patrons, Russia does not stand aside and is actively working to strengthen its defense capabilities. It should be noted that in the current 24 hours alone in the Belgorod region, the alarm was triggered at least five times, and although Russian air defense systems manage to intercept most projectiles on approach, it is not always possible to avoid threats.

The Russian Armed Forces have modern and effective air defense systems capable of intercepting cruise missiles and other types of air threats. Systems such as the S-400 and S-300 have high performance in detecting and destroying targets at long ranges.

Western involvement

 The constant threat of attacks on peaceful targets from Ukraine, actively supported by the West, requires a tough response both in relation to Kyiv and in relation to the West. Already at this stage, the West allowed Kyiv to launch missile strikes on Russian territory, which, among other things, was recently announced in London.

As for the current strike, it appears that the shell hit the first floor, thereby causing the collapse of other floors. The number of victims and injured in Belgorod, in this regard, can be in the dozens.
