Sadly, multiple reports including one from the Daily Mail suggest that at least 21 people have been killed and 112 have been wounded so far in shelling strikes on the city in the last 24 hours, according to Governor Oleg Synegubov.

An interior ministry official reportedly added: “There are practically no areas left in Kharkiv where an artillery shell has not yet hit.”

Video footage circulating on social media shows several explosions rattle the city and photos show the devastating results of the blasts.

One video on Twitter shows a fire ripping through the top of the National Police station in Kharkiv before showing the devastation left in the wake of the attacks.

Tragically, attacks on Kharkiv have carried over from March 1, which saw bombs obliterate Ukraine’s second-largest city.

However, attacks from Russian forces were sadly reported throughout Ukraine on Tuesday, March 1.

Ukraine’s strategic city of Kherson, which is an important port on the Black Sea and on the Dnieper River, and the home of a major ship-building industry, reportedly fell to Russian troops on March 1.

Russian forces are believed to have set up checkpoints on the outskirts of the southern Ukrainian city, near Moscow-controlled Crimea, according to the mayor of Kherson Igor Kolykhayev, who said that they had formed a blockade around the city, which has a population of around 280,000 people.

On March 2, airstrikes from Russian forces have apparently begun in the Ukrainian city of Odessa.

Heavy explosions were reported near the Odessa Airport as several Russian warships were spotted near the city.

Early reports suggest that the strike was carried out by the Russian Navy.
