It comes as Russia stages a huge military response to the bombing of the Kerch Bridge on Saturday, when a truck bomb exploded taking with it a huge chunk of the 12-mile road and rail link between Russia and its annexed territory, Crimea
A Russian missile strike hit critical infrastructure in a city 40 miles from NATO country Poland today.
Witnesses reported three explosions in the city shortly after noon local time (0900 GMT)
The blasts left 30 per cent of the town temporarily without electricity, according to the city's mayor Andriy Sadovyi who announced the news on Telegram.
He added that the water supply had also been disrupted in two of the city's districts.
The head of the Lviv Regional Military Administration, Maksym Kozytsky, noted on Telegram that an attack was carried out on a power facility in the Lviv region.
“Lviv and the Lviv region: possible power outages. Once the alarm is over, we will engage all services to quickly resume network operation. Stay in shelters, the threat is still ongoing," Kozytsky said.
Similar strikes had hit the same electricity supply centre on Monday.
City authorities said late on Monday that power had been largely restored in the region, but Ukrainian Deputy Interior Minister Yevheniy Yenin said some settlements in the region were still without electricity on Tuesday morning.

It's quite clear from this and other article, quoting Ukrainian officials, that they perceive that Russia is working to turn the lights off in much of the country, with some success.
This all seemed so clever just 48 hours ago. As Day Two of the Anti-Terrorist Operation rolls out in the skies above Ukraine, it seems a lot less amusing.
Russia is making the case for Ukraine to receive long range weaponry that can destroy targets deep inside Russia.
Honduras, Venezuela, and Cartels would love some as well.
No they aren’t, and you’re a warmonger.
Ukraine isn’t an ally, and it never was.
If you want World War III, that's how you get World War III.
A perfect way to ensure a nuclear response!
Why? I thought the heroic suicide truck bombers of Ukraine (or, should we say "homicide truck bombers", as apparently the Ukies tricked some professional driving into piloting the doomed truck-bomb) could already reach any target inside Russia they wanted to?
I wouldn’t trust Russian missiles to go off course and hit a NATO country...which is what Zelensky would want. Russia is playing a dangerous game.
The great arrogance and conceit of DC neocons and MIC is that they think the USA will remain immune from this war. They can happily use Ukraine as a proxy to wage war on Russia, without any blow-back whatsoever.
So you all are good with letting Putin destroy Ukraine, talk about war mongers.
That would result in all-out war and total destruction of Ukraine.
What about the fact that Ukraine has no chance of defeating Russia don't you understand?
And, there is absolutely NO public will for us to get involved directly, justifiably so.
I imagine if putin uses a nuke, he will be killed!
I am sure he has been warned...
Don’t be so sure!! Things have changed and not for the better.
Today’s Results of missile strikes as of 14:00

- Ladyzhinskaya TPP put out of action (Vinnitsa)

Total blackout in many enemy cities and the water supply is disrupted in some places. People are evacuating and fleeing the country, with huge queues at exits.
According to the city’s mayor:
Russian air force strikes have knocked out four power substations - it will take months to restore them.
⚡️Attack On Ukrainian Logistics hubs !
Today, in the midst of a wave of attacks on energy facilities, the Russian Aerospace Forces delivered, among other things, high-precision strikes on important logistics hubs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine ,the railways. It flew, first of all, to the Pavlograd junction (Dnepropetrovsk region), the second time in a few days, where concentrations of Armed forces of Ukraine’s manpower and equipment were located, ready to be transferred to the front. This junction is extremely important for the Ukrainian army, since it is it that is the railway artery for the entire grouping of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Donbass, which can be seen on the map. Its elimination paralyzes the transfer of heavy equipment to the front, as a result, it is easier for our troops to defend and attack. The Armed Forces of Ukraine, while the node is not operating, will be forced to use ordinary roads, consuming the resource of equipment and wasting fuel.
The second attack was on the Shepetovsky junction (Khmelnitsky region), which complicates the supply of the Southern group of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Kherson region. With a significant delay, they will receive repaired equipment, which was repaired at a nearby repair shop (also destroyed today). As a result, other factories in Ukraine will need to be used to repair equipment. Since it will no longer be able to deliver or repair the broken equipment of the Armed Forces of Ukraine through that interchange.
AFU barracks burns in Vyshgorod (near Kiev)
Despite criminal prosecution for filming strikes on AFU military facilities, Ukrainians continue to share content.
“What about the fact that Ukraine has no chance of defeating Russia don’t you understand?”
Right now it looks like Ukraine has no chance of defeating Russia all the way to Moscow!
The great arrogance and conceit of Putinophiles thinking Russia is a super power. Sorry, the world doesn’t need Putinist Russia. It will never defeat the “globohomo” west because everything about Russian society is corrupt and fake.
He will be killed one way or the other.
Great pic. You got any current ones of the Moskva? How many days has it been patrolling the bottom of the Black Sea now? Humiliatingly, it was sunk by a nation with no navy. LOL.
If the Young Putineers call you a warmonger, you can rest assured that you’re not. Projection is a hell of a thing!
interesting to hear that driver was unaware of the plot(?). Can you provide any details on that? TIA
