About a month after the start of the war between Russia and Ukraine, Kharkiv continues to resist its Ukrainian forces, despite being 80 kilometers away from Russia. This district of Moscow has been under constant attack and has not been occupied by the Russian army.
Kharkiv, the country’s second-largest city, has been a battleground since day one. From that moment on, the Russian government considered that it would be easier to occupy the district and advance the offensive; However, Kharkiv has only dealt with artillery and now after 27 days it is now just a push for Russian troops stuck in the ice plain.
Russian bombs have struck several buildings, homes and shops in the city center. Police say 266 civilians have been killed since the start of the fighting in the city.
The regional hospital has been briefly quiet for several days since the Russian advance in the area was halted, and the bombing seems to be focusing on the front lines.
It is considered that despite being a border town, the Ukrainian army has focused its forces on stopping the conflict and delaying the advance of the Russian army. Kharkiv City Council says many of the buildings in the country’s second-largest city are in ruins. Those in Kharkiv are desperately searching for food and medicine.
