14 Injured in Russian Strikes on Kharkiv's Kyivsky District, Including a Child


Six people were injured following Russian strikes on residential areas in the Kyivsky district of Kharkiv. Among the debris, an 8-year-old boy was rescued. Head of the Kharkiv Regional State Administration, Oleh Syniehubov, and Mayor Igor Terekhov provided updates on the incident.

Syniehubov reported three confirmed missile strikes by the Russian army in the Kyivsky district, with efforts ongoing to assess the full extent of the damage. Mayor Terekhov had previously warned residents about explosions in the city and urged caution.

Syniehubov later confirmed that occupiers had destroyed two private houses, from which emergency services rescued a child. He also noted a grass fire at another location without casualties reported at the time.

In a subsequent update, Mayor Terekhov mentioned another child trapped under the rubble, but Syniehubov clarified later that the information wasn’t confirmed. He then revised the casualty count to four: an 8-year-old boy, a 74-year-old woman, and a 75-year-old man were hospitalized, while a 38-year-old man received on-site medical assistance.

By 5:09 PM, Syniehubov revised the casualty count to six, with two additional women receiving medical aid on-site.

Update: The Russian shelling of Kharkiv injured 14 people, including a baby and an 8-year-old boy. Private houses, high-rise buildings, cars, a post office, a service station, and a gym were damaged.
