Smoke billowed over the city of Lviv in western Ukraine Saturday after multiple explosions were heard near an oil depot.
Sirens began sounding moments before three explosions were heard and then smoke could be seen rising over the city, Fox News’ Brett Velicovich described.
Andriy Yermak, chief of staff to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, later confirmed the attack by Russian forces.
The strikes come as President Biden visits Ukrainian refugees in Warsaw, Poland just over 240 miles from Lviv.
“I don’t know, I’m just I’m assuming, it’s a message to Biden because it’s a clear escalation. They haven’t been really striking, Lviv, they just haven’t,” Velickovich said.
Also, Another group of Russian soldiers was eliminated by Ukrainian forces today. At least one Russian soldier was captured alive.
