At least nine people were killed and 57 injured after a Russian missile attack on a large Ukrainian military facility near the Polish border today, according to reports.

Ukrainian Defence Minister Oleksii Reznikov took to Twitter and said, ” Russia has attacked the International Center for Peacekeeping & Security near Lviv. Foreign instructors work here. Information about the victims is being clarified. This is new terrorist attack on peace & security near the EU-NATO border. Action must be taken to stop this. Close the sky!”

Russian planes fired nearly 30 rockets at the facility, according to regional governor Maksym Kozytskyy, however, several were intercepted before they hit.

According to Ukraine, foreign military instructors have previously worked at the base. It was uncertain if any were present at the time.

A Ukrainian Defence Ministry is currently investigating if any foreign instructors were present at the time of the strike.

The 360-square-kilometre (140-square-mile) facility, which is less than 25 kilometres (15 miles) from the Polish border, is one of Ukraine’s largest in the country’s western region.
