Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy responded to the Russian attack on the Kharkiv region. He reported that the enemy fired 15 rockets at the city simultaneously.

"Russian terrorists exploit the fact that Ukraine still lacks adequate air defense and the capability to destroy launchers right at our borders. This shortcoming isn't just ours — it's the world's, which for the third year hasn't dared to deal with terrorists as they deserve," Zelenskyy stated.
