The Russian Federation deliberately delivers double strikes on Kharkiv. The second wave is aimed at affecting law enforcement officers and rescuers, according to the head of the Kharkiv Regional Military Administration (RMA), Oleh Syniehubov.

Syniehubov stated that the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation deliberately attack Kharkiv in two waves to kill Ukrainian rescuers and law enforcement officers.

"Last night was one of the hardest strikes on the Kharkiv region. Civil infrastructure and residential buildings were targeted. Their tactic involved shelling in two waves," emphasized the head of the RMA.

He explained that initially, the Russians attack residential buildings, and then, when rescue services and police arrive at the scene, a second strike occurs, during which Ukrainian service personnel and civilians are killed.

"There was no strike on military targets or soldiers. These are attacks exclusively against civilians," Syniehubov said.

Today, during an air raid alert in Kharkiv, explosions were heard.
