This city, Ukraine’s second largest, which is about 40 kilometers from the border with Russia, has been regularly pounded by the Russian military since the start of the Russian invasion of the country in late February. However, Moscow’s forces have never been able to understand it.

According to the authorities’ count, hundreds of civilians have been killed in the Kharkiv region since the war began.
