Lviv mayor says airport itself not hit in Russian strike

LVIV — Russian forces struck an area around Lviv’s airport in western Ukraine, Mayor Andriy Sadovyi says, with ambulance and police vehicles racing to the scene.

Writing on messaging app Telegram, Sadovyi says he can’t not give a precise address of the targeted area ” but it’s definitely not an airport.”

At least three blasts were heard in Lviv and armed checkpoints have turned motorists back from roads toward the airport.
