According to Sadovy: "Russian missiles have hit the area near Lviv airport.

I can’t disclose the address yet, but it definitely was not the airport itself. The windows in the buildings of our ATP-1 [public transport provider] are damaged.

The situation on the scene is being confirmed and will be reported later.

Be careful, follow the instructions in case of air raid alarms, and do not share photos from the scene of the shelling."

Update: Sadovy later reported that several enemy missiles had struck the aircraft repair facility, which was destroyed by the attack.

"Operations at the facility had been halted beforehand, so there are no human casualties as of now.

Emergency service personnel and utility service workers are working at the scene," the mayor of Lviv added.

Background: On the morning of 13 March, Russian forces fired 8 missiles at the International Peacekeeping and Security Centre in the village of Starychi in the Yavoriv district of the Lviv region.

Over time, 35 people were reported killed in the attack.
