This is the aftermath of a Russian missile attack on a kindergarten in western Ukraine.
Mayor Andriy Sadovyi confirmed that the nursery was incinerated in the overnight attack, and four people were injured.
He said the explosion damaged more than 100 apartments in nearby residential buildings.
‘Many missiles were shot down, but there were also hits in Lviv,’ Mr Sadovyi said, adding that orders were given to evacuate at least one burning building.
The city is hundreds of miles from the frontline but is regularly a target of Russian attacks to disrupt supply routes for Western weapons.
Footage shared on Telegram shows a crater-like hole in front of a badly damaged block of flats.
In the neighbouring region of Volyn, three people were killed by a Russian missile strike and more were injured, the region’s governor Yurii Pohuliayko said.
