A nighttime strike on the Shevchenkivskyi district of Kharkiv has resulted in six fatalities and ten injuries. Kharkiv Mayor Ihor Terekhov confirmed the casualties, stating that the attack involved “Shahed” drones targeting residential areas.

The assault inflicted damage on at least nine high-rise buildings, three dormitories, several administrative structures, a store, a gas station, a service station, and multiple vehicles. Mayor Terekhov condemned the attack, labeling it as further proof of Russia’s status as a terrorist state.
