Russians conducted a nighttime raid on Ukraine. As a result of the attack, a fire broke out at an energy infrastructure facility in the Lviv region, and information arrived about damage to buildings in Ivano-Frankivsk in western Ukraine.

"The enemy conducted a missile attack on a critical energy infrastructure facility in the Lviv region. A fire broke out. Firefighters are already working on-site. At the moment, there are no reports of casualties. We will inform you about the extent of the damage later," said the head of the military authorities of the Lviv region, Maksym Kozycki.

In Ivano-Frankivsk, formerly Stanislaviv, buildings on two streets were damaged. "According to preliminary data, there are no casualties. The city will compensate all homeowners whose windows were shattered. But the most important thing is that everyone is alive and well!" wrote Mayor Ruslan Marcinkiv.

"The transmission system operator's facilities in the southern and western regions were attacked. Unfortunately, as a result of the shelling, two workers were injured at one of the facilities. They were transported to the hospital. Equipment was damaged," the ministry reported on Telegram.

The Ukrainian Air Force had earlier reported two groups of missiles flying over the country from the north and south. The Russians also used strike drones for the attacks.

The missiles were fired from four strategic bombers Tu-95 MS, which took off from Olenya Air Base in Russia, wrote the Ukrinform agency.
