Strike on Kharkiv

On the afternoon of June 22, Russian troops dropped four guided aerial bombs on Kharkiv at once. One of them hit a residential building.

As RBC-Ukraine reported, the fall of one of the bombs was caught on video. The dashcam footage shows that the enemy bomb fell in the middle of the street, right in front of cars that had stopped at a red traffic light.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has already responded to the shelling of Kharkiv. He called on partners to make strong decisions that would help Ukraine destroy Russian combat aircraft on Russian territory.
