Night attack in Kharkiv on December 8

Several loud explosions occurred in Kharkiv last night. Shortly after the first explosion, an air raid alert was declared in the region. The mayor of the city will stay in shelters until the alert ends and will not publish footage from the scene.

Shelling of Kharkiv and the region

The occupiers seized the border areas of Kharkiv region in the first weeks of the full-scale invasion. Last fall, the Ukrainian military liberated almost the entire territory of the Kharkiv region.

However, almost every day since the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion, the occupiers have been using missiles and drones to attack Kharkiv and the region. In recent months, the number of attacks has significantly decreased.

Recently, the occupiers shelled Kupiansk-Vuzlovyi with Uragan MLRS. A man was killed in the attack.

The Russian army also dropped explosives on a police car in Kharkiv region. At that moment, law enforcement officers were going to detain collaborators.
