The Day of Marmot for Kharkiv

Russian Federation has shelled the first capital of Ukraine every day

In 1919, Kharkiv became the temporary capital of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic. The city developed for 15 years as the capital of Ukraine and only in 1934, the capital was moved to Kyiv. Every Ukrainian knows this and honors the history of his country. But the occupiers, having failed to seize Kyiv, seem to have decided to erase it from the ground Kharkiv.

Every evening in Kharkiv is a warning about a possible missile attack. Most often, these warnings become real. The occupiers are firing missiles at the outskirts of the region and at the city itself. Russia has already hit the subway station, peaceful houses, the regional administration, and the Pedagogical university with missiles. Residential areas of Saltovka have been under aerial and artillery bombardment since the first days of the war.

On the night of 6 July, the occupiers attacked three districts of Kharkiv.

"About 1 hour Russians struck in the Obzonyanskyy district — hit the open territory. In the Novo Bavarian region, the administrative building was hit and part of the building was destroyed. In Kyiv district, due to a missile strike, the premises of a higher educational institution was destroyed," said the chairman of the regional military administration Oleh Synyehubov.

On July 7, the situation in the city and the region did not improve. By 6 p. m., the Russian military launched a massive missile strike on one of the city's districts.

"The occupiers attacked one of the districts of Kharkiv. They attack cities by multiple-launch rocket systems. According to the regional Emergency medical center, three people have been injured by Russian shelling to date. The information is updated," said the head of the Kharkiv military administration Oleh Synyehubov.

On the morning of July 8, rescuers found 3 dead.
