The Russian Armed Forces struck a Ukrainian tank school in Kharkov, where foreign tanks and instructors were stationed, underground movement coordinator Sergey Lebedev told Sputnik, citing fellow Kharkov residents.

"The tank school at 192 Poltavsky Shlyakh Street in Kharkov has been attacked. According to the underground [sources], foreign tanks with foreign military instructors were recently brought there," the coordinator said.

According to him, there were two strikes in the Novye Doma neighborhood in the Slobodsky district of Kharkov. But there are reports that trolleybuses are now running.

Ambulances went there, but they did not turn on their lights, only sirens. According to preliminary data, about 15 dead and more than 20 wounded. At the moment there is no access there, everything is blocked," Lebedev said.
