Taking to social media the mayor of Lviv, Andriy Sadovyi confirmed the strikes. Sadovyi posted: “5 aimed missile strikes on Lviv. Relevant services have already left for the place. We find out more detailed information.”


Confirming the number of dead regional governor Maksym Koyzystkiy revealed: “Objects suffered significant damage. Unfortunately, there are dead and injured. As of this hour, 6 dead and 8 injured are known. One child was among the victims.”

An adviser for President Volodymyr Zelenskyy also confirmed the missile strikes. The adviser commented: “Five powerful missile strikes on the civilian infrastructure of ancient European Lviv.

“The Russians continue to barbarically attack Ukrainian cities from the air, cynically declaring to the whole world their ‘right’ … to kill Ukrainians.”

      Do some research on the background to this whole situation and you will find many instances of the Ukrain committing terrible acts against ethnic Russians in the Ukraine over a prolongued period of time. Unfortunately virtually nobody bothered to write about them in the worldwide press
