Quote from Terekhov: "A rocket attack on Kharkiv [took place overnight]. The city’s central neighbourhoods were hit, in particular the Osnovianskyi and Kyivskyi districts. Early reports indicate there are no casualties or fatalities."

Update: Terekhov later clarified the aftermath of the Russian rocket strike.

In particular, a historical building, the house of the merchant Adam Piotrovsky, which was restored several years ago, was damaged.

So was a school in central Kharkiv.
