In the early hours of 25 May, around 1 am, the Russian armed forces launched four missile strikes targeting Kharkiv city and Kharkiv district, according to reports.

Kharkiv Governor Oleh Syniehubov said the Russian forces used ballistic missiles of the S-300 type.

In Kharkiv’s Slobidskyi district, one missile hit a lyceum building while another struck an industrial area.

According to Syniehobov, “Fifteen private vehicles were damaged along with the facade of a 9-story residential building.” No casualties were reported in this district.

Two missiles also landed in open areas in Kharkiv district, with no injuries cited in the accounts. Prosecutors and police investigators are working on the scene “to document war crimes,” the governor said.
