Russian military shelled two dormitories in Kharkiv, killing at least eight people

On the evening of August 17 and on the night of August 18, the Russian military shelled two dormitories in Kharkov. The first is in the Saltovsky district, the second is in Slobodsky.

As a result of the shelling of a hostel in the Saltovsky district, seven people were killed and 20 more were injured. During the shelling of Slobodsky, according to the mayor of Kharkov Igor Terekhov, one person died , 18 were injured. "Suspilne" also reports two dead. In total, according to Terekhov, there were five "arrivals" in Kharkov at night.

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky called the shelling of hostels "a vile and cynical strike against civilians, which has no justification and demonstrates the impotence of the aggressor."

“What happened on Wednesday evening proved once again that this is not a war of one army against another. They are fighting for our death as a people. That is why they hit houses. And we are fighting for our lives. And no matter how much Ukraine and Kharkov are bombed, we will not only survive, but also win. We will defeat Russia and the death that it brings to us, ”Terekhov said .
