This is the first bombing in Lviv, where several foreign embassies evacuated from Kiev have moved in recent weeks.

LVIV.- “It was night, but suddenly the sky was like fire, as if it were day, there was an explosion and everything shook. A piece of rocket fell from the sky“.

Sunday, the eighteenth day of the invasion and The war also came to LvivThe “spiritual” capital of western Ukraine, near the Polish border. At 3:30 a.m., when sirens sounded and everyone was urged to come to the shelters, the Russian attack on this hitherto “undefeated” area caused panic among the population. And he has shown once again that Vladimir Putin, the new pariah of the international community in the corners of the world, listens to no one and is determined to continue his absurd war.

Just as the Kremlin threatened yesterday when it warned that the supply of logistical weapons to Ukraine was considered a military “target” in the new context of this invasion, which turned the world upside down, A rocket attack was launched on the base of the city of YavorivNear this city, which NATO seems to have used not only to send weapons, but also as a training center. The governor of the region said 35 people were killed and 134 wounded in the attack. This is the first attack in this part of Ukraine, where various foreign embassies evacuated from Kiev have also moved in recent weeks. Already on Friday, when the Russian attack spread to this part of Ukraine, with the bombing of the military airports of Lutsk in the north and Ivano-Francis in the south, Russia clearly showed the purpose of the supply cut. From here it is sent to the east to help with weapons, medicines and other items on the fronts of Kiev, the capital, Kharkov, Mariupol and other cities that are at the center of heavy fighting and siege for days.

Russia has attacked the International Center for Peace and Security near Lviv. Foreign instructors work here. “Information about the victim has been verified,” Ukrainian Defense Minister Olex Reznikov wrote on Twitter.This is a new terrorist attack on peace and security along the NATO-EU border“, – he condemned. “Measures need to be taken to stop this. “Shut the skies!” A demand that NATO has so far rejected in an attempt to avoid a “third world war” that is, in fact, already happening. Not only arms, ammunition and aid are coming to Ukraine from various NATO countries, but also hundreds of foreigners who want to accompany Ukrainians in the fight for the values ​​of freedom and democracy.

“My parents, my family, my brother live 7 kilometers from the Iavoriv estate … My brother called me this morning and told me that they heard explosions, windows and doors moved and they were in a panic,” he told La Andrei Nation. Which, as in all Lviv – is sent – even, is heard, but from afar, explosions, at 6 o’clock in the morning.

Beyond the missiles of this military base, which caused death and destruction, The Ukrainian anti-aircraft battery managed to intercept other missiles that landed 20 kilometers east of Lviv.. There were other explosions that also caused fear.

“Pieces of downed rockets flew over the roofs of houses, it was night, but it seemed like day … The noise was huge, I saw a fire like I have never seen in my life“But our army managed to eliminate them,” he said ᲔᲠᲘ Rosteslav, who describes the arrival of the war in Lvov.

A few hours later millions of residents of the city in the last two weeks It was “invaded” by 200,000 IDPs from the eastPreferred to stay and not cross the border, the atmosphere was gloomy. There is no one on the streets and everything is closed.

Although it reflects the spirit of resistance, endurance and also Great religiosity, However, many were encouraged to go to Mesa. The Church of the Holy Catholic Church in Greece – most in Galicia, as it is historically called in the West – was full of believers for 10 hours, most of them women, children, the elderly and adults, or those who did not want to fight the enemy. The faces of the people who spent the night in the shelter were sleepless, anxious as the war now reached their homes.

With songs in the Byzantine ritual, during the sermon, Father Eugene did not speak here very close to the attacked base, where the dead and wounded were counted. But he pointed to this war that changed everyone’s life from one day to the next and left them without any conviction. He said that you must have faith in God and that “even death can do us no good if there is faith.”.

At 11:30, when the celebration was over, The alarm siren sounded again. Some quickly put on their jackets and ran away. But most remained. Finally, as my translator explained to me, he sang, standing up, as they do in theaters and events, the hymn in which he prays to God “great and unique,” save Ukraine.
