Russian rocket attack four miles from NATO border kills 35: Ukraine

A Russian rocket attack just four miles from the border with NATO member Poland has killed at least 35 people, according to a government official.

Lviv Governor Maksym Kozytskyy said on Sunday that around 134 people were also injured in an airstrike on a military training base, the International Center for Peacekeeping and Security, in Yavoriv .

The site is west of Lviv, the city in western Ukraine.

In a statement shared on his Telegram channel and translated from Ukrainian to English via Google, Governor Kozytskyy said the Russian military fired more than 30 cruise missiles and claimed the majority were shot down.

But several missiles managed to pass through, causing extensive damage and starting a fire, which was later extinguished, the governor added.

Governor Kozutskyy said in an update article: “I have to say that, unfortunately, we have lost more heroes. 35 people died as a result of the bombing of the peacekeeping and security center.

“Another 134 with varying degrees of damage are in hospital.”

This is a developing story.

A man injured in this morning’s airstrikes at a nearby military compound is attended to by medical personnel outside the Novoiavorivsk district hospital on March 13, 2022 in Novoiavorivsk, Ukraine. A separate strike occurred at the nearby Yavoriv military complex.
