Kharkiv streets in darkness after Russian rocket strikes

STORY: Missiles rained down on regions and parts of cities including the capital Kyiv, Lviv and Rivne in the west, Kharkiv in the northeast, Kryvyi Rih and Poltava in the center, Odesa in the south and Zhytomyr in the north. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said that out of dozens of launches against his country on Tuesday, Russian attacks only hit 10 targets.

"Thank you to all our partners who help defend our skies," Zelenskiy said in his nightly video address, in which he noted the role of the sophisticated NASAMS air defense systems.

There was no immediate word on casualties, but the strikes knocked out power in several regions.

A Kharkiv resident, identified only by his first name Ruslan, told Reuters while waiting for the subway to resume its service, “I think there is a tactic to take the people by exhaustion. And they think that exhaustion will wear us off. But I think nothing will wear us off. We are strong and tough, and we believe that we will win."
