Russia targets a military position in western Ukraine near the Polish border

Russia has targeted a military training center in western Ukraine, near the border with Poland, according to Ukrainian authorities.

The Lviv Regional Military Administration said that eight missiles were fired at the International Peace and Security Maintenance Center (IPSC), in the Yavoriv region of Ukraine.

This site is located about 34 miles (55 km) from Lviv, a major city in western Ukraine where thousands of civilians have either fled or passed through trying to reach Poland.

IPSC is a training center for the Ukrainian military, mainly for peacekeeping missions. The administration said that information on casualties was being confirmed.

At the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, its forces mostly attacked the north, east and south of the country, but in recent days Moscow has expanded its attacks to positions in the center and west.

On Saturday, Zelensky said, members of the Kherson city council rejected plans for a new republic. Kherson is located in southern Ukraine and is now under the control of Russian forces.

Before invading Ukraine in late February, Russia “recognized” the Ukrainian regions of Donetsk and Luhansk as two new and independent states.

Russia has supported a separatist war in eastern Ukraine since 2014.
