Russians have almost destroyed Ivano-Frankivsk airport - mayor


Russian missile strikes have nearly destroyed Ivano-Frankivsk airport's infrastructure.

According to Martsinkiv: "They are killing our airport infrastructure, it is already almost destroyed. And this is the third attack on the airport.

The invaders are targeting the airport, and this is the third attack. Fortunately, according to preliminary information, there are no casualties.

The invaders want to sow panic in western Ukraine, because they realise that the Ivano-Frankivsk, Lviv and Ternopil regions are the hinterland of Ukraine and that many people are moving there. That is why they want to sow additional panic".

Details: Martsinkiv added that this time "there was an alarm for almost 2.5 hours, then they cancelled it - and literally 10 minutes later missiles started falling".

He said the air raid siren was sounded manually after the first strike, but this is the second time the alarm has failed to go off.

The mayor also asked residents not to publish information about the location of the explosions on social media so as not to help the invading forces.

Background: On the morning of 13 March, Russian occupiers struck Ivano-Frankivsk airport for the third time since the war began, and also attacked Lviv Region for the first time: they fired eight missiles at the International Peacekeeping and Security Centre (Yavoriv military training ground) in the village of Starichi, near the border with Poland.
