According to Ukrainian sources, six people were killed and another 16 were injured in a Russian rocket attack on the northeastern city yesterday.
The information could not be independently verified. They were made on Telegram by the governor of the region, Oleh Sinehubov. After the attack, a large fire broke out in a residential building. A skyscraper was hit, Kharkov Mayor Ihor Terekhov said on Telegram.
Media reported that a cruise missile hit the house and set it on fire. Governor Sinehubov said other places in Ukraine’s second-largest city were also hit. The bombing was “quite chaotic”.
Attack “shows the aggressor’s impotence”
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy told Telegram that a residential building was “completely destroyed” in the attack. It was a “shameful and cynical attack on civilians” that was “completely unjustified” and showed the “impotence of the aggressor”.
Meanwhile, Ukrainian forces say they have repelled a Russian attack in the southern Kherson region.
