Russian Attack Kills Four In Kharkiv

An air raid on Ukraine’s northeastern city of Kharkiv killed at least one person, as three people were killed in the southern city of Kherson amid renewed Russian shelling.

“Today, the Russian army has been shelling Kherson atrociously all day,” Zelensky said in his video address.
“Two women, nurses, were wounded in the hospital. As of now, there are reports of six wounded and three dead.”

The front in southern Ukraine has been considerably quieter since Moscow withdrew from Kherson city in November last year.

The region is one of four in the south and east that Russia claimed to have annexed last year although it did not fully control the territories, and the regional capital is still subject to frequent shelling.

A missile also hit a block of flats in Kharkiv, killing one woman, injuring at least three others and causing widespread damage, regional governor Oleh Syniehubov said.

Pictures from the scene showed fire engulfing part of a residential building in the country’s second-biggest city.

Syniehubov said on Sunday the attack took place in the city’s central Kyiv district.

“Three people were slightly injured. Unfortunately, an elderly woman was killed,” Syniehubov wrote on Telegram. “Her husband was nearby when the strike occurred and by a miracle suffered no serious injuries.”
