A Russian airstrike struck Freedom Square in central Kharkiv, destroying the surrounding area and damaging the Kharkiv Regional State Administration Building.

A video of the airstrike was shared online by both Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and Ukrainian Minister of Foreign Affairs Dmytro Kuleba.

Ukrainian regional governor Oleg Sinegubov said in a video, "This morning the central square of our city and the headquarters of the Kharkiv administration was criminally attacked," adding that it was not yet clear how many people were injured or killed by the strike.
