Russia shelled Lviv when US President Joe Biden paid a visit to Poland. However, there was still no serious reaction from the West.
This was stated by spokesman for President Zelenskyy Serhiy Nikiforov, Channel 24 informs.
He noted that Biden was near the border with Ukraine, so many people saw the symbolism in these strikes by Russia.
"This is a demonstration of the need to stop Russia on Ukrainian territory, because if this is not done, the missiles will fall closer to NATO borders," Nikiforov warned.
Nikiforov noted that he did not notice any reactions from NATO countries. Biden initially said Putin should step down, but the White House later corrected him. Allegedly, the president did not mean calls for the overthrow of Putin's government.
"Unfortunately, we have not heard any serious comments, serious statements about the shelling of Lviv, the fall of missiles near NATO borders," Zelenskyy's spokesman said.
On 26 March, Russia twice launched missile attacks on Lviv. The first explosions took place after 4 p.m. - five people were injured by Russian missile strikes, and a fire broke out at an oil depot. At about 7 p.m., new explosions took place in Lviv.
