Russians shelled Kharkiv

On Saturday, May 25, at about 16:00, explosions were heard in Kharkiv again. The Russian occupiers hit a construction hypermarket located in a residential area of the city and the city's Central Park. At least two people were killed and 24 were injured.

Black smoke rose into the sky after the attack. Mayor Ihor Terekhov and the head of the Kharkiv Regional Military Administration Oleh Syniehubov reported the aftermath of the shelling on Telegram.

"A fire broke out at the site of the hit, so intense that the smoke is visible even from the city center. All relevant services are working there.

According to Syniehubov, the terrorists hit the hypermarket with two KABs. The shelling caused a fire on 15,000 square meters.

"We have a large number of people missing. There are many wounded. The strike was aimed at the shopping center, where there were many people – this is pure terrorism," Terekhov wrote.

In a commentary to journalists, the mayor said that about 200 people could be in the hypermarket.

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy reacted to the shelling. In his Telegram message, he noted that if Ukraine had enough air defense and modern combat aircraft, such Russian strikes would be simply impossible.

"And that is why we are appealing to all leaders, to all states: we need a significant strengthening of air defense and sufficient capabilities to destroy Russian terrorists. This is a task that must be accomplished and can only be done together with the world. Every day we call on the world: give us air defense, save people. Every decision not to support us is a loss of our people," Zelenskyy emphasized.

The Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Ihor Klymenko said that the fire has covered more than 10 thousand square meters.

"As of now, we know about 2 dead and 24 injured people. According to the information received, there were more than 200 people in the building. At least 15 people are currently out of contact," the minister said.

He emphasized that extinguishing the fire is complicated by the presence of a significant amount of flammable materials. There is a possibility that the fire will spread to nearby warehouses. At the same time, there is a constant threat of repeated enemy shelling.

In his evening address to Ukrainians, Zelenskyy said that he had heard the first reports on the shelling of Kharkiv.

"Saturday afternoon. One of the largest centers – there were many employees and visitors inside. Now there is a fire on the entire territory. All the necessary services have arrived there: The State Emergency Service of Ukraine, medical services, local authorities, and police. Everyone is fighting for every life," the President noted.

"This attack on Kharkiv is another manifestation of Russian madness. There is no other way to call it. Only such madmen as Putin are capable of killing and terrorizing people in such a vile way. We already know that there are wounded and dead. My condolences to the families and friends. Everyone who has suffered will be provided with the necessary assistance," the head of state assured.
