Ukrainian forces continue to fight against Russian troops in the Kharkiv region, pinning down enemy positions with artillery fire.
The Russian army bombarded Kharkiv, Ukraine's second largest city, which lies less than 40 kilometers from the Russian border, with heavy artillery for weeks.
After breaking the siege, continued Ukrainian counterattacks forced Russian troops to retreat toward the border.
Volunteers from around the world joined the fight since the invasion started, following a call by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
