Aerial views of Kharkiv – the largest city in northeastern Ukraine
Kharkiv is the second most populous city in Ukraine, one of the eight most populated cities in Eastern Europe. The city was the third largest industrial, scientific and transport center of the Soviet Union after Moscow and Leningrad.
