Russian strikes on Kharkiv

The Russian occupiers continue to regularly shell Kharkiv and the region with combined attacks, striking during the day and at night. The regions of the northeastern and eastern parts of the region are particularly dangerous.

Because of this, the heating season in Kharkiv was completed ahead of schedule amid Russia's massive missile attacks.
