Russian occupying forces attacked an energy infrastructure facility in Ukraine’s Prykarpattia, having caused a fire there, Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast's Governor Svitlana Onyshchuk said on Telegram on Jan. 14.

The fire broke out at the damaged facility, but rescuers promptly handled it, she said.

Two other missiles launched in that direction were downed by the Ukrainian air defence.

According to preliminary information, no victims were reported.

"In order to minimize the consequences of missile strikes, the section of the road near the infrastructure facility was closed for traffic in advance" the governor added.
