In total, five people were killed and 40 injured in the attack.

According to the diplomat, members of the Polish community of Lviv were not hurt in the attack either. – However, we have information that two of the people who died were parishioners of the Roman Catholic cathedral in Lviv.

As he explained, the information about the death of two parishioners, mother and daughter, was provided by the official profile of the Lviv Cathedral on Facebook and the Roman Catholic Metropolitan Archbishop Mieczysław Mokrzycki.

“We advise against any travel to Lviv and Ukraine in general”

Kowal, when asked about the safety of tourists who would like to visit Lviv, strongly advised against it.

– It is difficult to say that anyone in Ukraine can be safe, because attacks like today can happen at any time. Clearly, in accordance with the recommendations that can be found on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, we advise against any travel to Lviv and Ukraine in general, he declared.

– We recommend everyone who is already on the territory of Ukraine to immediately return to the country. Regardless of the various periods that take place during this war, this has been the case since February 24, 2022, since the beginning of the full-scale Russian aggression against Ukraine, and nothing has changed in this regard. Even if at some point Polish citizens feel that the situation is calming down, believe me – it is only apparent. Today’s events show that no one in Ukraine is safe and such situations can happen at any time – said Kowal. Five people were killed and 40 injured, including one child, in a nighttime Russian missile attack on Lviv. 35 buildings were damaged. Ukraine’s air force intercepted 7 out of 10 missiles launched by the Russians from the Black Sea.
