People may still be trapped under the rubble of a residential building destroyed in a Russian attack on Kharkiv. Emergency rescue operations have resumed.

This information was reported by Anna Chernenko, a correspondent for Hromadske Radio in Kharkiv.

She confirmed that this morning, rescuers resumed their work at the shelling sites following the attack by Russian troops the previous day, on January 23. The night before, at 10 p.m., the work had been suspended due to the risk of a wall collapse.

«Unfortunately, five people were killed in this five-storey building, and one person was successfully rescued. There may still be several individuals under the rubble, but the exact number is yet to be determined; neighbors suggest two people. We hope the number of victims does not increase,» the correspondent stated.

Anna Chernenko clarified that the enemy did not attack this house with S-300 missiles, which they used on January 23 during a massive assault on Kharkiv. It was a different type of missile, possibly an X-22.

In two districts of Kharkiv, 11,000 consumers were without electricity after the morning attack. By the evening, around a thousand were still affected.

As a reminder, according to official figures, 62 people are hospitalized as a result of Russian strikes on Kharkiv on the morning of January 23. Eight people, including a child, lost their lives in the attack.
