At least seven civilians were killed in a shelling of the center of Kharkov on Thursday, local Ukrainian officials said. The Russian army also attacked more than 40 cities in Donbas, the Ukrainian army claims.

The military situation in eastern Ukraine is worse than people say it is, and the country now needs heavy weapons to fight Russia effectively, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba said.

Kuleba also said that peace talks with Russia are not actually being conducted, while his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov claims that Kyiv is moving away from the original concept of the agreement between Russia and Ukraine.
