Russian “Caliber” Hit the Center of Lviv City

On the night of July 6, the aggressor's missile destroyed residential buildings. Civilians killed 

Another night turned into a tragedy for Ukraine. During the night, an aerial alert was issued across the country due to the launch of Russian missiles from the Black sea. It is known that the rockets changed their trajectory several times, shifting the radius of the threat from eastern and central Ukraine to the west of the country. 

The final target of the Caliber missiles (Sizzler – NATO classification) was Lviv. The explosion sounded in the central part of the city. The occupiers attacked a high-rise building, destroying the 3rd and 4th floors in several sections. Rescue work is ongoing. To date, 4 people have been killed, 34 injured. The youngest victim was 21, the oldest victim was 95 years old. 13 people were rushed to hospital. There may still be people under the rubble. 35 homes were slightly damaged, and 60 buildings were severely damaged. 50 cars were also damaged.

Other missiles were shot down on the way to Lviv. The Ukrainian air force could shoot down 7 of the 10 missiles. The debris of the hit missiles fell in the villages, no one was injured.

On July 6, the Russian Federation attacked Ukraine's cultural and historical centre – Lviv. We emphasize that the missiles changed the trajectory of the flight. Against whom does the Russian Federation fight? Is it an accident that another missile hit a residential facility, not a military one? 

Also, on the night of July 5 to 6, the invaders released the Ukraine Shahed strike drones. The explosions were heard in the Dnipro region.
