Update from Kharkiv #5

Thursday February 24, 2022 5:57 AM

Hi Bob,

Woken up by blasts at 5 am. Now the Russkies are 5 km away. V could hear Kalashnikovs working when he went to pick up his mother-in-law. There was pinpoint bombing or shelling of some military objects in Kharkiv. We had to queue for fuel for an hour.

Best wishes


Will you stay in Kharkiv?

What is the mayor saying?

We certainly will. The Mayor is working hard to control the situation. Schools and kindergartens are closed. Vitally important services and factories are working as usual. Kharkiv air shelters with a capacity of 1.5 are in the adequate condition. Banks, shops, public transport, water, heating, electricity OK with fighting just 5km away! The Mayor is always in contact with people visiting major sites, meeting people, giving press conferences

Best wishes
