Footage circulating on social media apparently shows a massive explosion in a strike at the Kharkiv government regional headquarters.

The authenticity of the clip has not been independently verified. Reports on social media say that it was a Russian strike.

It was unclear if the attack had hit the building or the street in front of it.

There are no immediate reports of injuries.

Kharkiv, in Ukraine’s northeast, has seen some of the heaviest fighting since the Russian invasion began last week.
