The intensity of shelling of Kharkiv city has decreased in recent weeks, but the enemy uses more powerful munitions.
“Although the intensity of shelling of Kharkiv has decreased, bombs and more powerful missiles are launched on the city. And the destructions are very, very serious. The situation, of course, is tense, but under control,” Kharkiv Mayor Ihor Terekhov said during the nationwide marathon, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
The enemy wants to destabilize the situation in the city to prevent businesses from working and make people feel constant fear, he noted.
“But Kharkiv residents are courageous people. Markets work. Small businesses begin to open. But, of course, we must be very careful. Russian aggressor can launch strikes at any moment,” the mayor said.
According to him, about 150,000 Kharkiv residents have been left homeless.
