The western Ukrainian city of Lviv was the target of a Russian air strike this morning. The impact of a kamikaze drone sparked a fire in a city warehouse and injured two people - one seriously, according to local authorities. Lviv is just under 80 kilometers east of the border with NATO and EU member Poland.
Other parts of Ukraine also reported Russian attacks - according to the military administration, ten Iranian-designed "Shahed-136/131" drones were shot down at dawn over the southern Ukrainian region of Mykolaiv alone. In the southern city of Krivyi Rih, a drone hit a multi-story residential building, starting a fire, according to authorities. Another drone was shot down.
Ukraine has been fending off a Russian invasion with Western support for more than a year and a half.
