On July 6, Russian troops launched a massive air attack on the Lviv region. Ukrainian defenders shot down 7 out of 10 Russian cruise missiles “Kalibr”, but civilian objects were hit, causing casualties among local citizens.

In particular, a Russian missile hit a multi-storey building in Lviv. In addition, about 35 residential buildings, 50 cars, and critical infrastructure were damaged. Due to an attack, 4 people were killed, and 34 were injured, informed Maksym Kozytskyi, Head of the Lviv Regional Military Administration.

Update: As of July 7, 10 people were killed and 45 were injured, including 3 childrenreported the State Emergency Service of Ukraine. Search and rescue operations were finished.

Moreover, the fallen debris of downed Russian missiles were recorded in the Lviv and Zolochivskyi districts of the Lviv region. In both cases, according to preliminary information, there were no casualties.

“Russia manufactures missiles, uses Western components, and bypasses sanctions. The only way to stop this is by force. We need more air defense systems than we currently have. Mechanisms for punishing states for re-exporting crucial components for missile production to Russia are also needed, as well as strengthening countermeasures and closing loopholes for such exports,” reacted to the attack Andrii Yermak, Head of the Presidential Office of Ukraine.

Secretary General of the Council of Europe, Marija Pejčinović Burić, in her turn, strongly condemned the night’s missile attack by Russia on civilians in Lviv. “A day will come when those who commit these vile acts will be held accountable,” she wrote on Twitter.
