Russian troops launched new strikes against Kharkiv, most likely using S-300 missiles, in a third attack on the city's civilian infrastructure in a day, Oleksandr Filchakov, head of the regional prosecutor's office, said on Jan. 23.

Eight people were injured.

In the morning, Russian forces launched S-300, Kh-32, and Iskander missiles against Kharkiv, killing eight and injuring 60 people, according to the State Emergency Service.

New explosions were reported in the city at around 10:05 p.m. The Kyiv and Kholodnohirskyi districts of Kharkiv came under another attack, Filchakov said.

According to the Kharkiv Oblast Governor Oleh Syniehubov, Russia hit an education facility and damaged residential infrastructure.

"Another strike on residential buildings. There is no military facility there. Only residential buildings or civilian infrastructure, such as shops, hospitals, pharmacies," Kharkiv Mayor Ihor Terekhov wrote on Telegram.
