Russian shelling causes at least $9B in damage to Kharkiv - mayor

As a result of enemy shelling, Kharkiv sustained damage worth at least $9 billion, which is a very approximate amount.

Kharkiv Mayor Ihor Terekhov said this at a press conference, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"As for the damages inflicted by Russian aggressors, they are very significant. Now it is impossible to say for sure whether it’s 6, 7, 8, or 9 billion dollars in financial terms. It can be stated that as of today, it is somewhere around $9 billion. But this is a very approximate figure. Because there are things that cannot be evaluated now," Terekhov said.
