Russian troops attacked Kharkov and its environs.
On September 17, explosions sounded in several districts of the city at once, writes Russkaya Vesna.
Residents post footage of black smoke rising from objects hit by Russian missiles.
There were also strikes against Chuguev in the Kharkiv region.
Sources report that the RF Armed Forces have again hit critical infrastructure. In particular, the rockets hit an industrial enterprise and a gas station.
It is worth noting that even in the Russian Federation, the opinions of military experts regarding civilian shelling of infrastructure are divided. Some consider this a justified measure and say that the Russian Federation can attack any objects on the territory of Ukraine in order to destroy it.
But there are also more restrained opinions indicating that the “military special operation” is not aimed against the civilian population, and if it is carried out aggressively, it will turn the local population even more against the Russian Federation and it will be impossible to keep territories if they can be occupied. . In addition, there is a tendency for the supply of Western weapons to depend on the intensification of strikes on Ukrainian cities, analysts say.
