UKRAINE, KHARKIV OBLAST, Apr 03 — The Russian army has intensified attacks using guided aerial bombs in the north of the Kharkiv Oblast.

The head of the Kharkiv Regional Military Administration, Oleh Syniehubov, said this on the air of the national telethon.

“These are Bohodukhiv and Kharkiv districts. For example, the village of Liptsy was under fire. Their destructive power [of aerial bombs] is quite high. The Russians hit the civilian and transport infrastructure,” said the head of the RMA.

In particular, according to Syniehubov, Russians hit bridge crossings. Attacks with KABs [a 500-kilogram general-purpose aerial bomb with a high-explosive warhead developed in the Soviet Union — ed.] are also recorded along the front line.

On March 27, for the first time since 2022, Russians attacked Kharkiv with aerial bombs. Experts have established that the Russians carried out two strikes on the Shevchenkivskyi district from a Sukhoi aircraft: “This is an aerial missile that clings to an airplane. It was modified to be guided and hit ground targets.”

The Kharkiv Regional Military Administration has tracked the “evolution” of the KAB: first, the Russians updated the wings, then these wings became movable, and then a new stage — using a large-caliber guided munition. It flies further than the KAB — up to 90 km.
