Central Kharkiv has been hit by a Russian strike. The morning strike appeared to target government offices in Freedom Square in the city centre.
A viral video on Ukrainian social media channels shows a missile slamming into the front of the Regional State Administration building. That causes a huge, fiery explosion that blows out windows and nearby cars.
Video of the aftermath shows burnt out cars and debris in the city square. No injuries or casualties have been reported yet.
The north-eastern city of Kharkiv has seen heavy fighting and aerial bombardments in the past few days. It is Ukraine’s second-largest city and home to 1.6 million people.
