According to local media reports, as many as nineteen ambulances with sirens are driving from the direction of the Yaroviv facility after the strike.

With over two weeks into the invasion, Russian airstrikes have shifted further west, close to the city of Lviv and Ukraine’s border with Poland. On Saturday the Russian forces bombarded cities of Ukraine, pounding Mariupol in the south, shelling the outskirts of the capital, Kyiv, and thwarting the efforts of people trying to flee the violence.

Following the strike, a Ukrainian defence ministry is trying to establish if any foreign instructors were at the centre at the time of the attack, reported Reuters.
