At least seven people were killed and a dozen others injured on Sunday in the collapse of an apartment building in the Russian city of Belgorod following a massive shelling allegedly by the Ukrainian forces, according to the Mash Telegram channel, reported Xinhua.

Emergency services personnel were dispatched to the site of the collapse, a representative of the emergency services was quoted by Sputnik news agency as saying.

The shelling occurred on a 10-story residential building on Sunday in the city of Belgorod in western Russia, reported Xinhua, quoting local media reports based on an emergency official.

A search and rescue operation is underway, and people are being evacuated from the building.
