Ukraine Soldiers Fighting Russia In Kharkiv

Ukrainian forces claimed to have flushed invading Russian forces out of Ukraine’s second largest city of Kharkiv after heavy fighting on Sunday.

Russian forces had entered Kharkiv overnight and heavy street fighting was reported earlier in the day as the Ukrainians battled to regain control of their City.

Kharkiv’s Regional Governor, Oleh Synyehubov in a post on Telegram said: “Control over Kharkiv is completely ours!

“The armed forces, the police, and the defence forces are working, and the city is being completely cleansed of the enemy.”

The BBC reports that Russian troops were able to enter the city, Ukraine’s second largest, overnight.

Footage circulated on social media showed street fighting between Ukrainian and Russian troops.

The situation on the ground remains fluid and claims of control are hard to verify – but civilians on the ground have also told the BBC that Kharkiv is back under Ukrainian control and that conflict on the streets is easing.
