Kharkiv Air Force University destroyed.

Russian invaders have shelled Kharkiv-based Ivan Kozhedub National Air Force University, an Ukrinform correspondent reports, referring to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Over the past day, the city of Kharkiv has been continuously suffering from shelling launched by the Russian military. In the morning of March 1, 2022, Russian invaders launched a missile strike on Freedom Square, killing at least seven people, who were staying within Kharkiv Regional State Administration. Missile and artillery strikes were also launched on residential houses in such districts as Pivnichna Saltivka, Nova Bavaria and downtown Kharkiv.

A reminder that, on February 24, 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin initiated a full-scale invasion of Ukraine, starting a war. The Russian military are shelling and destroying the key infrastructure facilities and housing sectors across Ukrainian cities and villages. The shocking morning attack – condemned by Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelensky as a ‘war crime’ – killed at least ten people and injured 20 more as ceilings collapsed while all the windows were blown out on to the second-largest city square in Europe.

It left a large crater in this celebrated Kharkiv landmark – where just a few weeks ago I watched children happily skating as I spoke to people in a cafe about the threat of war. Amid the dust, the debris and the devastation lay the dead. Two bodies were side by side on the cobblestones near an abandoned car. One was barefoot; the other, clad in military-style clothing, had a clenched fist. This latest strike on Ukraine’s former capital, which is being battered by a bombardment from Russian forces that have poured over the border less than 30 miles away, was laden with the most grotesque symbolism.
