Huge explosions lit up in the sky in Lviv, a west Ukrainian city close to the NATO border. Witnesses reported at least 8-10 explosions after midnight, the smell of burning filled the air. With the Ukraine invasion stuttering, the Kremlin propagandists been flagging the need to 'Denazify' Poland. The Russian barrage of missiles in Lviv came right after evacuations from the Azovstal steel plant in besieged Mariupol. For weeks, 100s of Ukrainian fighters were stranded in the vast maze-like soviet-era steel plant complex. The Ukrainian govt said an exchange will be worked out for Azovstal fighters taken to Russian-held area.
