“This is genocide, this is the deliberate destruction of Ukrainians,” Lviv’s Mayor Andriy Sadovyi – who has accused of Russia of deliberately targeting civilians has alleged.
He was speaking to Ukraine’s 1+1 TV channel.
He said that six people were killed and 11 injured – including a child – in Monday’s attack on Lviv.
Two of the wounded were in a critical state. About 40 vehicles were damaged, he added.
While US President Joe Biden has accused Russian forces of committing acts of genocide in Ukraine, many countries have stopped short of doing the same, and there is no legal consensus on whether Russia is guilty of the crime.
Genocide is widely seen as the most serious crime against humanity and is defined under international law as a mass extermination of a particular group of people.
