Russian forces launched another attack on central Kharkiv on Sunday afternoon. Several people have been injured.

Quote from Terekhov: "The final two hits were directed towards the centre of the city.


The first missile struck a graveyard, while the second hit one of Kharkiv residents’ favourite places.

Needless to say, there is no military infrastructure in either a cemetery or a recreation area."

Details: The mayor's office confirmed that there are casualties.


The Oblast Military Administration said the Russian missiles hit "an open area near the park zone" in the Shevchenkivsky district, near a football pitch.

Early reports say the Russians used guided aerial bombs.

Previously: At least five people were killed in a morning strike on Kharkiv Oblast on 19 May.
