On the morning of April 18, four air-based cruise missiles struck Lviv. According to the Facebook page of the Head of the Lviv Regional State Administration, Maksym Kozytskyi, Russian militaries released rockets from the Caspian region. Three missiles hit two military infrastructure objects, and one hit a tire service. As a result of hits, there were fires.
Firefighters put out the fires during a few hours. Workers of the State Emergency Service of Ukraine disassembled the blockages. As a result, both military infrastructure facilities were utterly destroyed. 7 people died, four of whom were tire fitters. Among the 11 victims is a three-year-old boy who evacuated from Kharkiv with his mother.
Rescuers found the wreckage of Russian missiles even on the territory of the orphanage. The Head of the Lviv Regional State Administration, Maksym Kozytskyi, says: “We will rebuild everything destroyed, but we will not forget about the deaths of people. Killers will pay for everything!”
