Ukraine's governor of the Kharkiv Oblast, Oleh Synehubov, reported renewed dawn shelling of the city of Kharkiv on Thursday morning. "At the moment, there are 18 wounded, among them two children; one person died," Synehubov wrote on the Telegram social media network. Kharkiv came under Russian fire on Wednesday, too, with six people killed and 16 wounded in that attack according to the Ukrainian Emergencies Service. President Volodymyr Zelenskyy called Wednesday's attack "a devious and cynical strike on civilians with no justification." Kharkiv, with a population of about 1.4 million according to UN figures from 2017, is situated close to the Russian border and has been contested for most of the war. It was also hit by artillery fire on Tuesday night.
Ukraine, Turkey, UN to hold talks in Lviv
Zelenskyy will meet with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan later on Thursday in the western city of Lviv, far from the front lines. UN deputy spokesman Farhan Haq said that among other issues, Guterres would discuss "his overall efforts to do what he can to essentially lower the temperature as much as possible with the various authorities." Turkey, which helped broker an agreement clearing the way for Ukraine to export grain via the Black Sea, said the talks would also explore political solutions to the conflict.
