Russian strikes on Lviv raise fears of Ukraine war spreading west
Aircraft plant hit as Russia claims to be ‘tightening noose’ around south-eastern port city of Mariupol
A Russian missile attack near Lviv airport has raised fears of Vladimir Putin’s war spreading to western Ukraine, as Russia claimed to be “tightening the noose” around the south-eastern port city of Mariupol.
A facility for repairing military aircraft by Lviv’s international airport – only 43 miles from Poland’s border – was hit by two cruise missiles fired from the Black Sea on Friday morning.
