Both western Ukrainian cities of Lviv and Lutsk were targeted by overnight strikes, local officials said Tuesday morning.
“Many missiles were shot down… But there were also strikes in Lviv, and residential buildings were hit,” Lviv Mayor Andriy Sadovyiy said on Telegram.
“There is a fire on the upper floors, we are evacuating people”.
The city of Lutsk, about 150 km northwest of Lviv, the governor of the Volyn region, Yuriy Boguliako, said via Telegram, “a ‘strike’ occurred on the offices of a company operating in the industrial sector, indicating that two people were injured”.
In March 2022, four Ukrainian servicemen were killed and six wounded in Russian bombing of the Lutsk air base, according to local authorities, and Lviv, the major city in western Ukraine that is rarely targeted by Russia, was previously subjected to a Russian strike in July, which killed ten people and damaged more than thirty buildings, according to local authorities.
The Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky inspected his military forces in the Donetsk region, southeast of the country.
Zelensky said on Telegram, on Tuesday, that he met the soldiers at their positions in the Donetsk region.
He added that he discussed with his soldiers the daily offensive actions, military reinforcements, and the capabilities of the leaders.
Zelensky’s last visit to his soldiers in Donetsk was at the end of last July.
