Missiles hit apartments in Ukraine city as Putin mobilises

Kyiv, 21/9: Residents of Ukraine’s second city Kharkiv found themselves under bombardment again Wednesday after Russian missiles struck apartment blocks wounding at least one civilian just as Moscow announced an escalation in its war.

Our area was relatively quiet, and now you see what happened,” Lybov Grygorivna, 65, told AFP outside a badly damaged housing block.


Kharkiv, a major hub in the northeast just 40 kilometres (24 miles) south of the Russian border, was attacked on the first day of the February 24 invasion, but its Ukrainian defenders held out and it has since been regularly bombed.
