A 240-meter tall TV tower in the administrative center of Kharkiv was partially destroyed in a Russian attack on April 22, causing interruptions in the digital TV signal, regional governor Oleh Synehubov reported on Telegram.

There were no casualties.

According to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s Telegram post on the same day, the attack took place minutes before his conversation with US President Joe Biden.

Photos and videos of the enemy attack showing the main mast of the tower breaking off and falling to the ground were shared by a presidential advisor Serhiy Leshchenko and Reuters.

This follows earlier reports by Kharkiv Mayor Ihor Terekhov and Synehubov of a series of Russian strikes on infrastructure facilities in the city and three regional settlements within an hour, including the town of Vovchansk, where a guided aerial bomb hit the territory of an inactive meat processing plant.
