LEOPOLI – The war reaches the West and the borders of Europe. This morning, between 3.30 and 6.30, in the longest air alert in the region since the beginning of the war, eight missiles hit the Yavoriv International Center for Peacekeeping and Security, 30 kilometers northwest of Lviv (Lviv) and 25 kilometers from the Polish border. The sirens have sounded for a long time, on the city, considered a UNESCO heritage site West bastion of resistance and hub of humanitarian and military aid. The explosions were distinctly heard just before 6 am as fighter planes whizzed across the skies of Lviv.
The missiles, fired from the Saratov air base, in Russia, caused deaths and injuries. The center of Yavoriv is an important Ukrainian military base. Here since 2015 the United States has regularly sent instructors for training and the base also hosted international NATO exercises. According to reports from the mayor of Ivano-Frankivsk, a city 100 kilometers from Lviv towards Slovakia, explosions were heard at the city airport, both military and civilian.
On Friday, Russian forces had already hit Ivano-Frankivsk and the Lutsk military airport north east of Lviv, firing more than 10 cruise missiles by strategic bombers Tu-95Ms, as confirmed by the Ukrainian staff, causing 4 victims. Moscow therefore raises the bar. And he sends a very clear message to NATO and to the Kiev allies. Just yesterday Moscow made it known that she would consider legitimate military targets are convoys for the delivery of weapons from the West to Ukraine. The mayor of Lviv Andriy Sadovyi, in a post on Facebook, did not give news of victims, but a press conference announced for 10.
