In Lviv, things have remained comparatively quiet in the Russian war against Ukraine, which has been going on for more than three weeks. The city is full of refugees from other parts of the country. At least 35 people were killed and 134 injured in an attack on the Yavoriv military training area near Lviv last Sunday, according to Kiev sources. Urgently needed aid and armaments are being brought into the country via western Ukraine.
