Hi and I am sorry if this is a topic that has been covered numerous.
I was not sure if to tag along with another post or create my own.
I am travelling to Kiev/Kyiv in September and wishing to meet a friend in Kharkiv for the weekend. However she tells me the situation there is not good. Searching on Google it is hard to find up to date or recent information about what is going on there.
She tells me of numerous explosions recently, of the train station being mined and no trains operating?
I have just read another excellently detailed post from another traveller in this forum who gives the impression that it does not seem as bad as what I am told.
My government advises against travel to Kharkiv if it can be avoided which is more a warning. I fully understand of the potential for trouble and the earlier bombing of the rally and other explosions from a few months ago, but I do not read of any recent events.
Could any locals or those more familiar with the city than myself comment on how it is there at this point in time?
I appreciate any help,
