Four killed in drone attack on Kharkiv

Good morning, the time has just passed 10am in Kyiv and Moscow.

Associated Press has reported that Russian troops launched waves of Shahed drones against Kharkiv overnight. The regional governor, Oleh Syniehubov, said that four people were killed and 12 were wounded.

Russia attacked Ukraine’s second-biggest city with at least 15 drones, some of which were shot down by air defences.

Three rescuers were killed when Russia struck a multi-storey building damaged in an earlier strike. Six people were wounded at that location. Another 14-storey building was hit by a drone, killing a 69-year-old woman.

Kharkiv has become a frequent target for Russian troops in recent weeks. The eastern city is close to the border with Russia and has been hit with both ballistic missiles and drones.

A recent massive missile attack that aimed to significantly damage Ukraine’s energy infrastructure plunged most of Kharkiv into darkness, and the situation there is still being stabilised.

“Each manifestation of Russian terror once again proves that the country-terrorist deserves only one thing — a tribunal,” Ukraine’s human rights chief, Dmytro Lubinets, published on Telegram in response to the attack.
