A Russian strike against two districts of the northeastern city of Kharkiv on April 30 killed at least one person and injured at least nine, Mayor Ihor Terekhov said on television.

The authorities initially reported two people killed, but Terekhov said at around 11:15 a.m. local time that previous reports of a second fatality had not been confirmed.

Russian forces reportedly targeted the Kyivskyi and Kholodnohirskyi districts of the city, hitting residential areas, according to the mayor.

Governor Oleh Syniehubov reported that Russia likely attacked the city using KAB aerial bombs. Later during the day, the Kharkiv Oblast Prosecutor's Office clarified that Russia attacked the city with three UMPB D-30SN glide bombs, two of which were aimed at the Kyivskyi district and one at the Kholodnohirskyi district.

In the Kyivskyi district, a powerful explosion reportedly damaged an administrative building and more than 40 private garages, three of which caught fire.

Two civilian buildings were destroyed in the Kholodnohirskyi district, the State Emergency Service reported.

Russia has recently intensified its attacks against Ukraine's second-largest city, dealing multiple casualties and severe damage to Kharkiv's energy infrastructure.

On April 29, Syniehubov said that Russian forces bombed the Kyivskyi district of the city.
