Ukraine War: The central square of Kharkiv was opened by Russian forces earlier today, targeting a local administration building.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Tuesday called Russian shelling in his country’s second city a war crime and said protecting the capital from Moscow’s military was a top priority.
“The attack against Kharkiv is a war crime. It is state terrorism from Russia,” Zelensky said in a video statement.
Kharkiv’s central square was shelled on Tuesday by advancing Russian forces, who attacked a local administration building.
An AFP reporter noticed that the building had blown windows and debris around it. Emergency service personnel rescued those injured in the attack.
Kharkiv has been a target for the Russian military since President Vladimir Putin launched an invasion of Ukraine last Thursday.
“Kharkiv and Kyiv are now Russia’s most important objectives. The purpose of terrorism is to break us and break our resistance,” Zelensky said.
“They move on the capital the same way they do on Kharkiv. That is why the defense of the capital is a major priority for the state today,” he added in the video.
