A Ukrainian official shared a devastating video of a blast that destroyed an administrative building in Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second-largest city.
The news: The video that was shared on social media of an airstrike blast, shows that the whole administrative building in Kharkiv was destroyed in seconds.
- Ukraine endured another day of fighting as invading Russian forces claimed complete control of Kherson and advanced on Kyiv, the country’s capital, while troops intensified attacks on urban areas.
What’s going on: Russia has now claimed control of the entire city of Kherson, which is located in southern Ukraine, near the annexed region of Crimea. Russian tanks rolled into the Black Sea port city earlier this week amid fierce battles.
- As an entire Russian army division drew closer to Kyiv and airstrikes shook suburbs just outside the city, many terrified residents who remained in Ukraine’s capital in the early days of the war made desperate attempts to flee the city.
- Several footage showed families, children, the elderly, and the disabled attempting to cram onto already overcrowded trains leaving the city on Tuesday.
- This might be their last chance to flee a Russian siege.
