Russian strikes kill 11, including child, in Ukraine’s Lviv

(Update 1: upgrades death toll, adds detail)

Kyiv, Apr 18 (EFE).- Russian missile strikes on the western Ukrainian city of Lviv killed at least 11 people, including a child, local authorities reported Monday.

Lviv mayor Andriy Sadovyi updated the death toll in a statement on Telegram, according to Ukrinform news.

The strikes hit military and civilian infrastructure in the city located 70 kilometers (43 miles) from the Polish border, and which has so far escaped the Russian invasion relatively unscathed due to its location in western Ukraine.

The head of the regional military administration Maksym Kozytskyi said on Facebook that Russia had fired at least four missiles at Lviv.

Lviv, whose old town is a Unesco World Heritage site, has become a center for internally-displaced Ukrainians and refugees traveling to the European Union to escape the war. EFE
