According to the mayor of Kharkiv, at least 21 people were killed and 112 more were injured in shelling of Ukraine’s second largest city.
Despite severe bombing of Kharkiv on Tuesday and overnight, the governor of the Kharkiv Regional State Administration declared all Russian strikes “were rebuffed” and positions held.
“The Russian enemy incurred considerable losses,” Governor Oleh Synegubov remarked.
As Kharkiv was pummelling above by jet artillery, Russian forces reportedly invaded the city’s northeastern and northern regions.
Russia Controls Kherson City:
Russia’s defence ministry claims that its soldiers have taken Kherson in southern Ukraine. If the city falls, it will be the largest city in Ukraine to fall to Russian forces thus far.
We reported last night that Russian forces had been spotted on the streets of Kherson, and that the city’s mayor said that the city’s railway station and port had been taken.
