At least six people have died due to rocket attacks against Kharkiv, according to the Ukrainian Prosecutor General’s Office.
“As a result of mass shelling by the occupiers of Kharkiv, 6 people died and 31 were injured,” the office said on its Telegram channel.
A shopping center was damaged, as well as houses and vehicles, said Serhii Bolvinov, head of the Investigation Department of the National Police in Kharkiv.
Fragments of a rocket from a Uragan multi-launch rocket system have been found at the scene of the damage, he added.
Two of the dead were a father and his 17-year-old son whose car took a direct hit, he said. They were on their way to pick up a certificate for the teenager’s university entrance.
