On the morning of January 23, the Russians launched a strike in which they used almost 40 missiles of various types. A significant portion of the missiles were shot down, but there were some hits. More than 200 different objects were damaged – 139 houses only. 130 people were wounded or injured.
Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky spoke about this in his address.
“Unfortunately, 18 people died… My condolences to the family and friends. And this death toll may increase. In particular, a rescue operation is still underway in Kharkov – the rubble of the house is being cleared away. An ordinary high-rise building, ordinary people lived there,” the president noted.
He promised that the Russian war would definitely return home – to where this evil came from, to where it should calm down. There, in Russia.
“I want to note our entire team of the State Emergency Service of Ukraine, each and everyone who works to save people’s lives and help after the attacks.

Kharkov and region, Kyiv and region, Sumy region, Chernihiv region, Donbass, Zaporozhye and region, Kherson region, Nikolaev region, Odessa region, Dnieper and region, Kropyvnytskyi and region. All our regions, all our communities that need protection and receive it from the State Emergency Service.

“Today there is a decision of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine on economic security and economic stability right now, during martial law. Steps have been clearly defined that will help both Ukrainian entrepreneurs and government institutions overcome the whole range of problems that have been discussed a lot these weeks. As officials agreed with business representatives, a Council for the Support of Entrepreneurship will be formed, and its composition will include representatives of business. These are well-known names, well-known leaders of Ukrainian companies. A business that works for millions of people. Technology business, money, services and other industries. Different industries, so that there are different views. But one task is to strengthen our economy, our society,” Zelensky assured.
In addition, the government will introduce changes to the law on the Bureau of Economic Security and some other laws. The purpose of this is to limit as much as possible the potential for any possible pressure on legal businesses.
“A period of three months for an actual moratorium on procedural actions that could block the work of an enterprise has been determined at the NSDC level.

The state will fulfill its part of the moral agreement with business,” the head of state promised.
