Multiple Victims Reported After Strike on Kharkiv Office Building

Ukrainian officials said a Russian strike in Kharkiv on Saturday, April 16, killed at least one person, injured 18, and inflicted major damage to a five-story administrative building, along with several vehicles.

Footage from Ukraine’s State Emergency Service shows crews responding to what they said was a “large-scale fire” caused by the attack. The SES said sixty-five people were evacuated from nearby buildings, includes residences, and added that the blaze was extinguished at 2.37 pm, three hours after it was reported.

Governor Oleg Sinegubov said Russian forces had “increased the intensity of attacks on residential areas” and urged residents to exercise care and not to ignore air-raid sirens. Credit: SES Kharkiv via Storyful
