Ruined Northern Saltivka from the ground and the air

Blackened houses, broken windows, deserted streets. The impression that time stood still. No, this is not Chornobyl. This is Northern Saltivka, a large residential area in Kharkiv, in the summer of 2022.

Saltivka, where half a million people lived before the war, was shelled every day from the first days of the full-scale invasion. The neighbourhood of Northern Saltivka suffered the most damage. According to city authorities, approximately 70% of the houses were damaged or destroyed.

Kharkiv Human Rights Protection Group has been documenting the destroyed Kharkiv Region for almost a year, via drones and cameras on the ground. This collection contains photographs of the destroyed Northern Saltivka district.
