Russia attacks same critical infrastructure in Lviv Oblast with Kinzhals

Russian troops attacked a critical infrastructure facility in Lviv Oblast with Kinzhals from a MiG-31K, according to Governor Maksym Kozytskyi.

The Russian military attacked Ukraine with 29 Kh-101/Kh-555 cruise missiles and 28 drones at night on 24 March, hitting Kyiv, Lviv, Dnipropetrovsk, Odesa, Mykolaiv, and Kherson oblasts, according to Ukraine’s Air Forces. The targets hit critical infrastructure in Lviv Oblast with several missiles, causing a fire.

While rescuers were extinguishing the fire, the Russian troops launched Kinzhals there. Kozytskyi said that two Kinzhals hit the same critical infrastructure facility that the Russian troops had targeted at night in the oblast.

“The firefighters who extinguished the fire managed to move to a safe place,” Kozytskyi said.

The Russian military used to attack the same place twice and allegedly hit the emergency crew while they were working at the scene of the first attack.

On 15 March, Russia carried out a double missile strike on Odesa, targeting the same area twice while “all services were working at the scene.”‘
