“The enemy wants to destroy everything,” Mayor Natalia Balasinovic added. Pictures and videos online showed flames rising into the sky.
For its part, the State Service for Special Communications and Information Protection in Ukraine said on Sunday that Russian forces blew up a natural gas pipeline in the Ukrainian city of Kharkiv.
The communications service posted a video of the explosion, which was in the form of a “crow’s nest”, on the Telegram SMS application.
It was not immediately clear how important the pipeline was, and whether the blast could disrupt gas shipments outside the city or the country.
Despite the war, Ukraine continues to ship Russian natural gas to Europe.
In a related development, Ukrainian media reported that the Vasilkyv Air Base remains a hot spot.
While Russian forces are trying to capture the Vasilkiev Air Base, about 30 km southwest of Kiev, firefighters cannot reach the oil depot, which was set on fire a few hours earlier.
For its part, the General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces reported that “the occupiers lost three SU-30 aircraft, 11 helicopters, two SU-25 aircraft, two IL-76 aircraft, equipment and a fuel convoy during the past day.”
The Ukrainian State Emergencies Service explained that the bombing of a radioactive waste disposal site in Kiev did not reduce the pressure on storing radioactive materials.
The injury was on the fence, and the building itself and the tanks remained intact.
