Several deaths and dozens of casualties have been reported by Ukrainian authorities in the country’s second-largest city after being shelled by Russian artillery.

Kharkiv, which sits in northeast Ukraine close to the border with Russia, is still under Ukrainian control, according to officials, but fighting broke out with Russian troops over the weekend.

Numerous videos have appeared on social media of buildings being shelled, while other footage shows significant Russian armour entering the city.

The Ukrainian interior ministry adviser Anton Herashchenko said Kharkiv had been “massively fired on”, leaving “dozens of dead and hundreds of wounded”.
