Missile strikes continue to hit Kharkiv region

STORY: Kharkiv, Ukraine's second biggest city, had been relatively quiet since Ukrainian forces regained territory around it and pushed back Russian troops this month, enabling authorities to reopen the city metro network.

A Reuters correspondent in Kharkiv said repeated explosions could be heard on Sunday (May 29).

Russia didn't immediately comment on the situation in Kharkiv. It has denied targeting civilians in what it calls a "special military operation" launched on Feb. 24.
