As Russian Military Escalates Attacks on Ukraine, Fox News’ Trey Yingst Reports on ‘Loud Explosions’ in Kharkiv

By A.J. Katz 

The Associated Press reported Monday morning that, after months of relative calm in Ukraine, Russian military forces have targeted and struck multiple civilian areas in the major cities of Kyiv and Kharkiv. At least six people have been killed in Kyiv amid burnt-out cars and shattered buildings, the AP reports.

Fox News foreign correspondent Trey Yingst recently tweeted out his on-the-ground observations of the strikes in Kharkiv, the country’s second-largest city and one close to the Russian border.


The news of these new Russian attacks on Ukrainian civilian areas comes just days after Yingst traveled to the newly-liberated village of Hlushkivka—a small community about a two-hour drive from Kharkiv. When Yingst visited the area a few days ago, the locals seemed upbeat “and smiling” after finally being liberated from Russian occupation. However, the mood may be changing quickly in light of these new Russian military strikes. Hopefully Hlushkivka and small Ukrainian villages like it will be spared from another period of Russian occupation that the Ukrainian troops fought so hard to fend off.
