Kyiv, Apr 17 (EFE).- At least five were killed and 13 injured on Sunday in a series of Russian attacks on Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second-largest city, according to eastern Ukrainian authorities.
Kharkiv, in eastern Ukraine, has been targeted in a series of attacks in recent days as Russian troops prepare a major offensive in the region.
“The enemy cannot approach Kharkiv. Our Armed Forces are holding their positions, they are advancing in some areas. Therefore, the Russians resort to shameful shelling of residential neighborhoods,” head of the Kharkiv regional military administration, Oleh Syniehubov, said.
On Saturday, a missile struck the premises of the non-governmental organization ‘World Central Kitchen’, injuring four people.
“The work doesn’t stop! Today, the restaurant team is moving all food products & non-damaged equipment to another kitchen location in Kharkiv. The injured staff are doing well—and all the team here wants to continue cooking,” the NGO’s CEO, Nato Mook, tweeted on Sunday. EFE
