Maksym Kozytskyy, the governor of the Lviv region, said two individuals were hurt in a recent Russian air strike.

He did not specify the goal of the Russian forces’ attack near Lviv.

Russia struck the Beskidy railway tunnel in the Carpathian Mountains, according to Anton Gerashchenko, an adviser to Ukraine’s Interior Minister. This effort aims to cut off Ukraine’s railway infrastructure, a vital network, and hamper the transportation of weapons and fuel.

The Lviv region has long been a major transit point for Western armaments and humanitarian material.

Another event was the announcement by Luhansk Governor Serhiy Haidai that the Russian army controlled around 80% of the key city of Sievierodonetsk.

According to a local military officer, Russian troops invaded Sievierodonetsk – the last major city in the Luhansk region – from three directions on June 1, concentrating in the city centre.

On the same day, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz announced that the Iris-T air defence system would be sent to Ukraine to defend cities against Russian air strikes.

Scholz told parliament, “The government has chosen to provide the Iris-T system, Germany’s most modern air defence system.”

President Joe Biden also announced that upgraded missile systems will be sent to Kyiv so that it may target “important targets” in the battlefield.

President Volodymyr Zelensky stated that Ukraine has no plans to invade Russia, despite the fact that military weapons continue to come into the country.

“I know a lot of people in the US, including someone in the White House, who believe we can attack Russia using [US-made multiple launch missile systems]. But that is not what we are going to do.” Mr. Zelensky expressed his thoughts.

When the Ukrainian president vowed Kyiv would not strike Russian territory if it got a US-made multiple launch missile system, the Kremlin said it did not trust it.
