Russian airstrike on Lviv airport destroyed its repair hangar

Satellite photos analyzed by The Associated Press show the Russian strike on the Lviv airport today destroyed the repair hangar just to the west of the north end of its runway.

Firetrucks stood parked amid the rubble.

A row of fighter jets near the hangar appeared intact, though an apparent impact crater sat right in front of them.

Two other buildings nearby the hangar also appear to have taken direct hits in the strike, with debris littered around them.

The early morning attack on Lviv’s edge was the closest strike yet to the center of the city, which has become a crossroads for people fleeing from other parts of Ukraine and for others entering to deliver aid or fight.

The war has swelled Lviv’s population by some 200,000.
