“Today, during the morning attack on Lviv, patrol officers from the 2nd battalion immediately rushed to the explosion site where people were trapped under debris. There was a threat of further drone strikes, so there was no time for hesitation,” the police said.
“Law enforcement officers and citizens managed to rescue a woman and a man from the rubble. The 26-year-old man was hospitalized, while the 29-year-old victim initially declined hospitalization.”
The Russians attacked Lviv with Iranian Shahed kamikaze drones at approximately 5 a.m., targeting three industrial warehouses. These warehouses contained food products, household chemicals, and humanitarian aid. The fire engulfed an area of nearly 10,000 square meters. One person died, and two others were injured.
Lviv Mayor Andriy Sadovyi described the fire as one of the worst destruction incidents in the city’s history, adding that the losses will amount to hundreds of millions of hryvnias.

Truth can be hard to tell from fiction these days. Every viewpoint has its audience of backers and supporters, no matter how absurd.
If conscious disinformation is reinforced by state propaganda apparatus and budget, its outcomes may become deadly.
