Attack on Kharkiv. Seven people died

The day before, the Russians attacked the city of Kharkiv with drones. One of them hit a fuel depot, and the burning substances caused a fire that spread to 15 buildings.

Seven people died in these attacks, including three children: aged seven and four, and a six-month-old baby.

"Terror cannot remain unpunished. It cannot remain without a fair response. Terrorists should lose the war they started. Russia should answer for every life it ruined and annihilated," commented Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The head of NATO warns: We need to expand the arms industry

"NATO is not seeking war with Russia, but it must be prepared for a possible confrontation with this country that could last even decades," said NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg in an interview for the German "Welt am Sonntag."

"If Putin wins in Ukraine, there will be no guarantee that he will not attack other countries," warned the head of NATO. In his opinion, the best defense is to support Ukraine and expand the Alliance's potential.

He emphasized that NATO countries must quickly expand their arms industry, increase the production of weapons and ammunition in order to increase their supplies to Ukraine, and replenish their own resources.

NATO Secretary General emphasized that Vladimir Putin is already preparing his country's economy for the needs of a long war. "Therefore we must do more for our security," Stoltenberg added.
