Invading Russian forces shelled the center of Kharkiv on Aug. 30, killing five people and injuring another seven, Kharkiv Oblast governor Oleh Synehubov reported in his Telegram channel.

"As a result of the shelling of the central part of Kharkiv, at least 5 people died and 7 more were injured. The information is being clarified," he wrote.

The head of the region urged people to stay in shelters.

Russians have been shelling Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second-largest city prior to the start of the full-scale war, almost non-stop since February. Missiles are often launched from the nearby Russian city of Belgorod.
