Russian forces assaulting Kharkiv — reports

Ukraine’s security service says a large contingent of airborne Russian soldiers has landed in Kharkiv, touching off street battles for control of Ukraine’s second largest city.

The northeastern city has repelled earlier incursions by Russian forces, but reports indicate the current assault is larger than previous attempts, including an air assault. The news cannot be immediately confirmed.

A video purportedly from the city shows a man pointing out damage to his apartment, and then running for cover as a jet screams overhead.
