Russian Missile Attack Kills Five in Western Ukraine’s Lviv

Russian missiles hit a residential area in the western Ukrainian city of Lviv on July 6, just 43 miles from the border of Poland, a member of the European Union and nato. According to Andriy Sadovyi, the major of Lviv, the strike was “the largest attack on Lviv’s civilian infrastructure since the beginning of the full-scale invasion” last February.

  • Five people were killed.
  • Thirty-seven were wounded.
  • More than 50 individual apartments were destroyed.

Reuters reported that the Russians fired 10 Kalibr cruise missiles from the Black Sea toward various parts of Lviv. Three of the 10 evaded Ukraine’s defense systems and struck the residential area.

They, Russians, Rashists, say that they are bombing military objects but they hit a peaceful house. People were sleeping. How could they do it? World, save and help us, because without you we will not manage to deal with them.

The Trumpet said: Editor in chief Gerald Flurry wrote about Russia’s invasion the day after it was expanded into a full-scale war, stating: “I have been warning for more than two decades that Vladimir Putin would be responsible for violent conquests and that he would set in motion some astonishing and historic events.” Mr. Flurry explained that his warning about Putin’s Russia is based on his understanding of the Bible:

Ezekiel 38 is an especially important passage about Russia. … This whole chapter contains staggering understanding about the powerful Russian empire and its widely feared “prince.” …

I strongly believe this “chief prince” is Vladimir Putin, and I have explained why many times over the past 20 years. The alarming and sobering scenes coming out of Ukraine today dramatically prove that this understanding is right. Bible prophecy is being fulfilled this very moment in Ukraine!
