One civilian was wounded after Russian invaders attacked the Osnovianskyi district of the city of Kharkiv early on July 23, Oleg Synegubov, the head of the regional military administration, reported via Telegram messenger.

“According to preliminary information, the invaders fired from multiple launch rocket systems," he said.

“A residential building and office premises were damaged. All specialized services are working at the scene and are assessing the destruction caused by the invaders."

"Three pieces of ammunition hit open territory in the Zmiiv territorial community. The invaders destroyed 30 hectares of wheat in the same community. Farmers and locals extinguished the fire with their own hands."

In addition, residential houses and farm buildings were hit by the invaders in the Bohodukhiv district, he said. Several fires broke out during the day.

According to Synegubov, a 74-year-old woman was killed in the Zolochiv territorial community, while four people were injured.

"We ask residents of Kharkiv Oblast to be extremely careful," the governor said.

"Russia's multiple launch rocket systems can hit any point in Kharkiv. We emphasize that it's still dangerous to stay outside. The war continues. So don't ignore air raid alerts!"
