Strikes by the Russian Federation on Kharkiv

The city has been under Russian shelling since the beginning of the full-scale war. During the last massive attacks, the invaders destroyed almost all of Kharkiv's critical energy infrastructure.

In a recent interview, the mayor said that in the event of a longer delay in American aid, Kharkiv risks turning into a second Aleppo.

Terekhov said the $60 billion US military aid package currently stalled in Congress was "crucial for us" and urged the West to refocus on the war.

We need this support to prevent Kharkiv from becoming a second Aleppo.
