Shelling of Kharkiv: 11 dead, dozens wounded

In Kharkiv, 11 civilians have been killed and dozens injured in today's shelling of the city's residential areas by Russian troops.

This was reported by the head of the Kharkiv Regional State Administration, Oleh Synehubov.

"The Russian enemy is shelling entire residential areas of Kharkiv, where there is no critical infrastructure, where there are no positions of the Armed Forces that the Russians could aim at. There are shellings in Oleksiivka, Saltivka and Pavlopil districts. Dozens of civilians are dying. It happens during the day when people go to pharmacies, for food, for drinking water. This is a sin. Russia uses heavy artillery weapons! Due to the shelling that is still going on, we can't even use rescue services in time and eliminate the consequences," he said.

To recap, the occupiers struck Kharkiv with Grad launchers around Derevianko Street.
