Russian troops purposefully destroying Kharkiv municipal transport – mayor

Despite daily shelling, municipal transport continues to operate in Kharkiv, so the enemy tries to destroy the city's rolling stock and infrastructure.

"This [functioning municipal transport] triggers enemy’s aggression that is why they shell the city with such cruelty. They try to prevent Kharkiv from living a normal life as much as it is possible under today's military conditions," Kharkiv Mayor Ihor Terekhov said during the nationwide news marathon, Ukrinform reports.

The mayor noted that the intensity of shelling of Kharkiv had increased in recent days. Each MLRS strike brings new destruction to the housing stock.

"Today, Russian troops shell Kharkiv with such hatred, with such aggressiveness, such cynical destruction of the city occurs because Kharkiv does not give up, Kharkiv is a Ukrainian city that continues to live. They purposefully destroy the infrastructure to make Kharkiv residents freeze during the heating season. Our task is to withstand," Terekhov said.

As reported, on April 16, Russian troops struck a tram depot in Saltivsky district of Kharkiv with Tornado MLRS from the territory of the temporarily captured village of Lyptsi.

Around 05:00 on August 17, the enemy launched a rocket attack on Slobidsky district of Kharkiv. People were not injured.
