A Russian missile strike on May 15 on the Yavoriv district, only 15 kilometers from the Polish border, is a direct threat to the neighboring European state and NATO, Lviv Mayor Andriy Sadovyi wrote in a Facebook post on May 15.
"This time the target was 15 kilometers from the border with Poland, the EU and NATO," he said.
"The range of the launched missiles is 1,500 kilometers. The propagandists' talk about the need to denazify Poland does not now look like drunken cries."
According to Sadovyi, such aggressive steps as targeting areas so close to the border are motivated by Russia's despair at the defeats it has suffered in the war it has launched.
Early on May 15, Russia launched missile strikes on Ukraine's western Lviv Oblast from submarines in the Black Sea.
Ukrainian air defense shot down two missiles, while another four hit a military facility in the Yavoriv district near the Ukrainian-Polish border and completely destroyed it. There were no casualties as a result of the incident, Ukraine says.
