Russian attacks on Kyiv and Kharkiv

Published on

Russia attacked Ukraine's two largest cities on Sunday. Rocket fragments reportedly hit an apartment building in Kyiv, while at least one person was killed in an attack on a post office in Kharkiv.

One person was killed and nine others, including a baby, were wounded in a Russian attack on a post office in Kharkiv on Sunday, local authorities said.

According to Kharkiv Governor Oleh Synegubov, the injured child was eight months old. “The man who was killed worked at the post office,” Synegubov wrote in a telegram.

Shrapnel from a Russian missile hit a 14-storey residential building in the Kiev suburb of Obolon and started a fire, the local military administration said. No material damage was reported, but emergency services published photos of at least four balconies that were badly damaged.

Kharkiv is located in northeastern Ukraine, not far from the border with Russia, and is subjected to frequent attacks by Russian forces. Russia launched a major attack on the Kharkiv region in mid-May.

Russia has launched more than 800 precision-guided bombs at targets in Ukraine in recent weeks, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky wrote on Telegram. He again asks the country's allies for better weapons.

The faster we help the world deal with the Russian warplanes sending these bombs, the faster we can attack Russian military infrastructure. The sooner we achieve peace, Zelensky said in his daily video address on Sunday.

Russian President Vladimir Putin had previously said that the attack in northeastern Ukraine aims to create a “buffer zone” to protect the Russian border region of Belgorod from Ukrainian attacks.
