Three civilians have been killed with 28 others injured after Russian airstrikes hit a school and a residential building in Ukraine’s second-largest city, Kharkiv, early Monday, according to the Ukraine military.

A Ukrainian government, quoting the governor of the Kharkiv region,
Oleh Syneihubov, said on Telegram that the missile strikes which also included one that landed near warehouse facilities, were launched against civilian targets, calling the attacks “absolute terrorism.”

But emergency services personnel said there may be as many as two dozen people trapped in the rubble, and that they had made voice contact with several.

The Chasiv Yar attack was the latest strike in recent weeks that left many civilian casualties, the government official said.
