    According to a local official, at least five people were injured in explosions caused by Russian missile attacks on a fuel tank near the city of Lviv in western Ukraine.

    On Telegram, Maksym Kozytskyi, the head of the Regional Military Administration, said that two guided missile attacks on a fuel depot near Lviv, a city 60 kilometers (40 miles) from the Polish border, resulted in three large explosions.

    No apartment building in the city was hit by Russian air attacks, according to Kozytskyi.

    Another rocket attack is launched.

    Later Saturday, Lviv Mayor Andriy Sadovyi confirmed that Russia had launched another rocket attack on the city.

    He said on Telegram that three more powerful explosions were produced by a Russian missile attack at 6.55 p.m. local time (2055GMT).

    The concert has been canceled.

    Due to warning sirens sounding prior to the Russian attack, an open-air concert in the heart of Lviv was halted.

    After hearing the sirens, members of the Lviv National Academy of Music Orchestra, who were performing in front of the opera and ballet building, went into shelters.

    Hundreds of concertgoers were also forced to flee for their lives. Explosions could be heard shortly after that, which were later identified as Russia hitting a fuel tank in the city center.

    The war between Russia and Ukraine, which began on February 24, has sparked international outrage, with the EU, the United States, and the United Kingdom, among others, imposing tough financial sanctions on Moscow.

    According to UN estimates, at least 1,035 civilians have been killed and 1,650 injured in Ukraine, though the true figure is likely much higher.

    According to the UN refugee agency, more than 3.7 million Ukrainians have fled to neighboring countries, with millions more displaced within the country.
