The Ukrainian government announced, on Sunday, that Russian forces stormed the strategic city of Kharkiv, close to the border with Russia.
The government noted that the Russian army announced that it was besieging the cities of Kherson and Berdyansk in southern Ukraine.
Adviser to the Ukrainian Interior Minister, Anton Herashchenko, said in a message through “Telegram” that Russian military vehicles were seen in the streets of Kharkiv, northeastern Ukraine, on Sunday.
Numerous footage broadcast by Hirashchenko and the Special Communications and Information Protection Service of Ukraine showed several light military vehicles moving along a street and a separately burned tank.
The city was under fierce Russian attack in recent days, and Kyiv admitted that the situation there was among the most difficult in the country.
Kharkiv is Ukraine’s second most populous city, about 50 km from the border with Russia.
