Kupiansk, a crucial logistics juncture that was temporarily occupied by Russia in 2022, and nearby villages have recently been under heavy attacks as Russia intensified assault attempts in the area.

The city was attached at about 5:30 p.m. local time with Uragan rocket launchers, according to preliminary information. Residential buildings were reportedly damaged as a result.

The village of Mokra Rokytna in Kharkiv district also came under attack earlier the same day.

A Russian missile strike damaged the property of an agricultural enterprise, including solar panels, according to the report.

Kharkiv Oblast Governor Oleh Syniehubov announced on March 7 that local authorities would conduct mandatory evacuation of residents living in communities near Kupiansk.
