Russian forces shelled a military base in the Lviv region of western Ukraine on Sunday, near the Polish border and relatively untouched by the conflict, local authorities said.
The occupants conducted an air strike on the International Center for Peacekeeping and Security. According to preliminary information, they fired eight missiles, the Lviv regional administration said in a statement.
The military base in question is located about 40 kilometers northwest of Lviv, a large city in western Ukraine where many people displaced by the Russian invasion have flocked. Several countries have also moved their embassies there, deeming it safer than Kiev, the capital.
In addition, the mayor of Ivano-Frankivsk, a city located about 100 kilometers south of Lviv, said that a strike had targeted early Sunday the airport of this locality.
The explosions that occurred this morning were caused by a strike on the airport. We are in the process of establishing all the facts, said on his Facebook page Ruslan Martsinkiv.
