Among the wounded are two children, ages 10 and 12. Five of those injured are in serious condition, Syniehubov said.

He previously said earlier on Jan. 23 that Russian forces had targeted the Kyivskyi and Saltivskyi districts of the city, where the deaths were initially reported.

Kharkiv Mayor Ihor Terekhov said on national television that parts of the city were without water, electricity, or heat as a result of the attack.

Syniehubov reported on Jan. 22 that Russian attacks in the Kharkiv Oblast city of Kupiansk killed one person and wounded another.
