Russian forces launched an attack overnight in Kharkov, Ukraine's second largest city, killing two people and destroying two apartment buildings.
"As a result of the bombing of high-rise buildings in the Nemyshlyansky district of Kharkiv, many apartments in two residential buildings were destroyed," Ukraine's emergency services said in a statement this morning.
Rescuers fought to extinguish the fire, rescuing four people from the collapse of a building, but failed to save two others who were killed in the attack, according to international reports.
A school was also reportedly attacked around 3 in the morning with part of the building being destroyed.
