Russian drone attacks on the city of Kharkiv overnight on March 2 destroyed four cars and damaged the windows of at least ten residential buildings, Kharkiv Oblast Governor Oleh Syniehubov reported.

At around 12:20 a.m. local time, Kharkiv Mayor Ihor Terekhov announced a drone attack on the city via Telegram.

Local authorities later reported that four cars were destroyed. About ten garages and the windows of more than ten residential buildings were also reportedly damaged.

No casualties have been reported.

Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second-largest city, is located in the east of the country, just about 30 kilometers from the Russian border.

More than 20,000 buildings have been destroyed in Kharkiv since Feb. 24, 2022, according to Ukrainian government figures.
