Post: Kharkiv: Selenskyj accuses Moscow of barbarism


Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy criticized Russia’s attack on Kharkov Pedagogical University. This is “barbarism”. Will the city be Putin’s next target?

According to Ukrainian sources, Russia attacked the city of Kharkov with rockets on Wednesday night. The target of the attacks was the three districts of the city. Governor Oleh Syniehubov said on Telegram that a university building and an administrative building were destroyed. Three people, including a baby, were injured.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyj later harshly criticized Russia.

This characterizes the Russian occupation with 100 percent accuracy. This punch is most appropriate when describing what barbarism is.

In Wednesday evening’s video message, only an “enemy of civilization and humanity” can rocket into a pedagogical university. Zelenskyy said that no invader can go unpunished. “Every Russian murderer and rapist who enters our country will be held accountable. And it doesn’t matter how long it takes to complete this mission.” Ukraine will restore everything.

Zelenskyj already sees a strong reinforcement of the western weapons systems of the Ukrainian army. Zelensky said that with accurate artillery, Ukraine destroyed warehouses and other targets important to Russian logistics. “And this significantly reduces the offensive potential of the Russian army. The casualties of the invaders will increase every week,” he said.

Is Russia targeting Kharkiv after Donbass?

Recently, however, Russian troops succeeded and took the eastern Ukrainian city of Lyssychansk. Experts now assume that they will try to take full control of Donbass.

And then? Kharkiv could be Russian President Vladimir Putin’s next target, according to Pierre Razoux of the Mediterranean Foundation for Strategic Studies.

Kharkiv is Ukraine’s second largest city and is located in the northeast, just a stone’s throw from the Russian border. The city is still under Ukrainian control.

  • In the event of a “Ukrainian offensive”, Moscow could force Ukrainian troops to decide to defend Kharkov or move south towards Kherson. A war for the city of Kharkov, with a population of about 1.4 million, would undoubtedly be devastating, and a siege could last for a year, according to Razoux.
