In Kharkiv, the debris is being cleared from the site of a Russian strike on a residential building. So far, 19 people have been reported injured and three killed, states Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

"The rubble is being cleared. All the necessary services are on site. This Russian terror with guided aerial bombs must be stopped and can be stopped. We need strong decisions of our partners so that we can destroy Russian terrorists and Russian combat aircraft where they are," the Head of State emphasized.

According to Zelenskyy, it is possible to protect people and lives from missile terror by "clearing" the border areas from Russian launchers.

"We also need to protect against bombs. We need this determination," he added.

This afternoon, explosions were heard in Kharkiv. As it turned out later, Russian troops attacked the city with guided aerial bombs and hit a residential building.
