KHARKIV OBLAST, UKRAINE, Apr 26 — Russian shelling in the Kharkiv region has injured 13 people over the past day, reported the Kharkiv Oblast Governor Oleh Syniehubov.

In total, in just one day, about 15 towns and villages in the Kharkiv Oblast came under Russian artillery and mortar fire.

Since the start of the full-scale invasion, Russian troops have attacked the Kharkiv region that borders the Russian Belgorod Oblast multiple times per day. They’ve intensified the shelling since March 2024, targeting both civilian and critical infrastructure in the region, exploiting the lack of air defense systems and missiles in Ukraine.

Over the past day, Russia’s attack on the Balakliia railway station in the Izium district has injured seven men and four women. In addition, according to Syniehubov, the missile attack damaged the windows and roof of the railway station building, and the Kharkiv-Izium train, which was 15 meters away from the hit site.

Also, the Russian military shelled Novoosynove village in the Kupiansk district, injuring two women aged 73 and 60. There is information that Russia shelled the village from multiple rocket launchers, damaging a house and an outbuilding.

The governor added that the Russians shelled Borova, Izium district, from artillery, damaging a house. In Hlyboke village, Kharkiv district, they dropped three KAB bombs on the territory of a garden association, damaging four private houses and nearby buildings.
