What do we know about Lviv?

by naijarex

We reported just earlier this morning that a building near the area of the airport in Lviv was hit earlier this morning.

Lviv is just seventy kilometres from the Polish border, well away from the main battle zones in the east and south.

The area had been relatively spared from bombardment, apart from five days ago when there was a similar attack on a military training facility at Yavoriv, thirty kilometres from Lviv.

Our BBC correspondent in Lviv, Jonah Fisher, said it used to be considered a “safe haven” up until this morning when the shelling occurred.

He says it is possibly in an attempt by Russian forces to “cut off the supply of weapons into the country”, as major routes tend to run via Poland.
