Kharkiv civilian death toll reaches 4 after Russian strike on 17 May

The number of fatalities from the 17 May Russian attack on Kharkiv has risen to four, with 31 people injured, according to Oleh Syniehubov, head of the regional military administration.

Kharkiv’s proximity to Russia makes intercepting such strikes extremely difficult, leaving civilians vulnerable to the relentless Russian shelling despite Ukraine’s efforts.

“Today, a 33-year-old man died in the hospital. 16 people are receiving inpatient treatment, with two in critical condition,” he wrote on Telegram.

The other three victims were also civilian men.
