The Ukrainian authorities have plan to restart the Kharkiv metro and have asked thousands of people still sheltering at metro stations to leave, saying that it is now safe enough to go home.

Although Russian shelling has largely ceased in Ukraine's second biggest city, the attacks destroyed many houses and large apartment buildings, especially in the northern part of the city, leaving thousands of residents homeless. Authorities say they plan to offer alternative temporary housing.
