LVIV (Worthy News) – Russia has begun trying to cut off the supply of NATO military alliance weapons into the country by hitting an area near the area of the city of Lviv near the border with Poland, witnesses say.
Lviv, some 43 miles (70 kilometers) from NATO member Poland, had been relatively spared from bombardment till five days ago when there was a similar attack on a military training facility at Yavoriv, outside Lviv.
Lviv in Western Ukraine was so far considered a “safe haven,” including for displaced persons. However, it is also viewed as part of significant routes where NATO weapons arrive from Poland.
The building near the Lviv airport was hit after reports of air raid sirens in other parts of Western Ukraine, including near the borders of NATO members Hungary and Slovakia.
That has worried Hungary as more than 150,000 ethnic Hungarians also live in that area. It is a sign that the Russian forces expand attacks further away from what were the frontlines, witnesses said.
There were no casualties reported so far after Friday’s strike in Lviv, the city’s mayor said, but the attack was likely to increase concerns among residents that their city was next on the Russian target list.
The building has been identified as an airplane maintenance plant. Mayor Andriy Sadovyi said active work on the plant had earlier been stopped. He explained that rescue workers rushed to the site.
