"Russian army is striking! Take cover," the head of the Regional Military Administration wrote on his Telegram channel.

There were subsequent explosions in the city.

"There are strong explosions in Kharkiv. Stay safe," the mayor urged.

Preliminarily, the enemy is striking the city with ballistic missiles.

Russian strikes on Kharkiv

It should be noted that this city often suffers aerial attacks from the Russian army, who use kamikaze drones and various types of missiles for shelling. However, recently, the occupiers have significantly increased their strikes on Kharkiv, as well as the district and region, including destroying the energy and critical infrastructure, which has led to significant electricity problems for residents.

For example, the city was under shelling on April 23. and a day before that, on April 22, Russian forces also struck Kharkiv with a guided aviation missile X-59, which hit the television tower. As a result of the attack, this object of the city's television infrastructure was heavily damaged.
