Almost 200 kilometers to the north-east, two Russian rockets hit Kharkiv early on Saturday (August 13), leaving no casualties, but damaging buildings, cars, and trolley buses, according to Oleh Syniehubov, head of the region's Military Administration.

Russia has repeatedly denied targeting civilian areas, despite mounting evidence that its missiles have hit residential areas across the country.

Kyiv and the West have cast the conflict as an unprovoked attempt to reconquer a country that broke free of Moscow's rule with the break-up of the Soviet Union in 1991.
