Rocket or possibly airstrikes began after the curfew. Several cars were already driving on the streets, of which almost nothing remained. Rescuers could not immediately reach the wounded due to the ongoing shelling.

On March 1, at least 21 people were killed, and 112 were injured in Russian missile bombings in Kharkiv and the region.

Russians shelled residential neighbourhoods purposely. On March 12, the Security Service of Ukraine intercepted conversations between the occupiers. They admitted they shot at civilians in Kharkiv: “We were ordered to shoot everyone in a row: civilians, children, not children.”
