The mayor of Kharkiv, Ihor Terehov, said that the Russians are using more and more powerful bombs to fire at the city. He noted that the frequency of attacks has decreased, but “you have to be very careful, the Russian aggressor can strike at any moment”.

– Despite the intensity of the fire Kharkiv decreased, the Russians began to use bombs and missiles with more power. The damage we have today is very serious – said Terekhov, quoted by Ukrinform. As he informed, about 150,000 inhabitants were left homeless.

He argued that the situation was under control. In his words, the opponent wants to destabilize the situation and cause constant fear. However, “the people of Kharkiv are brave people”. As he described, there are bazaars in the city, and small businesses have resumed work. “But you have to be very careful, the Russian aggressor can strike at any time,” said Terekhov.

Three people had died in Kharkiv the day before, on Thursday, when Russian missiles fell on the Novobavarsk region, one of the residential districts. Five people were injured. The shelling destroyed an educational institution and a restaurant. On May 26, the Russians shelled the Pavlove Pole district – a residential area adjacent to the downtown of Kharkiv. Eight people died, including a five-month-old baby. The Russian troops used the powerful 2S7 Pion self-propelled guns in the attack.

Kharkiv – the second largest city in Ukraine

Kharkiv, the second largest city Ukrainebefore the invasion of nearly 1.5 million inhabitants, it is located only about 40 kilometers from the border with Russia.

The city was under daily fire in the first weeks of the Russian invasion. Until mid-May, Russian troops stood in the suburbs of Kharkiv. Later, there were reports of the success of the Ukrainian counter-offensive north of Kharkiv and the pushing back of the invader’s troops 3-4 kilometers from Russian territory. In the following days, however, the Russians regained several footholds in the Kharkiv region, which probably allowed them to resume shelling the city.
