Follow the evolution of the conflict in Ukraine throughout this day of Monday, April 18.

– “Powerful” Russian missile strikes in Lviv

Five “powerful” Russian missile strikes hit Lviv, a large city in western Ukraine usually relatively spared from the fighting, on Monday morning, announced its mayor, Andriï Sadovy, and an adviser to the presidency.

A resident of southwest Lviv told AFP he saw thick plumes of gray smoke rise into the sky behind apartment buildings.

Five powerful missile strikes at once on the civilian infrastructure of the old European Lviv. The Russians continue barbarically attacking Ukrainian cities from the air, cynically declaring to the whole world their “right” to… kill Ukrainians.

The emergency services have not yet intervened on the spot and for the moment, it is difficult to make an assessment. But for the regional governor the strikes would have done at least 6 dead and 8 injured.

“There is a child among the victims”said Maksym Kozitsky on Telegram, adding that the strikes had hit military infrastructure and a tire garage, causing fires.

Located far from the front, Lviv and western Ukraine have rarely been targeted by bombardments since the start of the Russian invasion.

– The targeted Kyiv region

The Russian Ministry of Defense announced on Sunday that it had fired high-precision missiles at an ammunition factory near Brovary.

– Mariupol without humanitarian aid

“There are believed to be between 100 and 130,000 civilians remaining in Mariupol. They suffer under fire, without water or food. Russia has completely blocked all humanitarian aid in the city,” the deputy mayor of Mariupol told BFMTV.

“People survive. They share everything they have with each other. People look for water directly in wells, in the ground, and look for food in abandoned stores,” he explained. .
