The governor of the Belgorod Region, Vyacheslav Gladkov, has accused Ukraine of shelling and claimed that the high-rise building allegedly collapsed due to a shell hit. Nevertheless, according to another version, a russian guided aerial bomb, which the russians wanted to drop on Ukrainian territory, fell on the house. As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, guided bombs from time to time fall on russian cities, because they break off from aircraft.

cnn | With a Surprise! cross-border attack, Russia ruthlessly exposes Ukraine's weaknesses (11.05.24)
The northern border assault follows the creation of a new Russian military grouping called Sever (North).  George Barros at the Institute for the Study of War [ISW] in Washington told CNN that Sever is an "operationally significant group." It's from this new force that units of armored infantry tried to cross the border. The available evidence suggests they were expected and suffered significant losses. But if more elite units join (there are reports that elements from other divisions may do so) Russia's ambitions could grow.
