R. Gelfenstein - The Ukrainian authorities are on high alert for possible attacks that may occur during the visit of UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, which will take place on Friday, August 19.

Antonio Guterres, Volodymyr Zelensky and Recep Tayyip Erdogan will meet in Lviv, in the west of the country, to discuss Ukraine's recent grain export agreement, "the need for a political solution to the conflict" and the security of the nuclear power plant in Zaporizhia, UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said.

However, the attacks were anticipated with a bombardment of the Kharkov region, killing at least eleven people, just hours before the announced meeting.

In addition to the dead, 35 people were injured as a result of Russian shelling in the Kharkov region, whose capital is the country's second-largest city. Nine of the deaths occurred in the capital and two more in the city of Krasnohrad, said Oleh Syniehubov, head of the regional military administration.

Russia denies that its military is deploying "heavy weapons" at the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant in southern Ukraine. This factory, the largest in Europe, has been occupied by the Russian army since March and is the subject of bombings that Russia and Ukraine accuse each other of.
