According to the Sun, the city's mayor, Ihor Terekhov, has called for urgent intervention from Western allies to protect its population of 1.3 million residents. The relentless Russian attacks on Kharkiv have left the city in turmoil, with vital infrastructure damaged and thousands without electricity.
