A Russian drone hits just 80 kilometers east of the Polish border. Russian air strikes are also taking place elsewhere in Ukraine.

The western Ukrainian city Lviv (Lemberg) 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.
