An aircraft maintenance plant close to Lviv has been hit with missiles, the city’s mayor has confirmed.

It is the closest the war has come to the historic city in western Ukraine, which has been a safe haven for people fleeing fighting

The mayor says no casualties have been reported so far and rescue workers are at the site

Two million people have fled Ukraine to Poland since the war began, the Polish Border Guard agency says

Ukrainian counterattacks and logistical woes are stalling Russia’s offensive in Ukraine, according to a UK military assessment

The US, meanwhile, says the Russian advance is frozen around the country on multiple lines of axes.

Survivors are reported to be emerging from the ruins of a theatre in Mariupol that Ukrainian authorities say was bombed by Russia.
