Russian shelling pounded the center of Ukraine’s second-largest city on Tuesday as Moscow’s invasion of its neighbor entered its sixth day.
Rocket strikes killed at least 10 people and wounded 35 others in Kharkiv, with authorities expecting to find more victims once debris is cleared away, Interior Ministry adviser Anton Herashchenko said, Reuters reported.
“The rubble is being cleared and there will be even more victims and wounded,” Herashchenko said.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy also called the attack on the city’s main square a war crime and “frank, undisguised terror,” The Associated Press reported.
“Nobody will forgive. Nobody will forget. … This is state terrorism of the Russian Federation,” Zelensky said.
The shelling on Kharkiv comes as Russia pushes forward its offensive toward Kyiv, but has still been unable to capture Ukraine’s capital.
