Russia launched an air strike on a Ukrainian military base Yavoriv in the west of the country near the Polish border, local officials said on Sunday, in what appeared to be the westernmost attack of the war.

"The occupiers launched an air strike on the International Centre for Peacekeeping and Security. According to preliminary data, they fired eight missiles," the Lviv regional military administration said in a statement.

The attack was carried out at a military unit at the facility, Interfax Ukraine news agency cited Anton Mironovich, spokesman for the Academy of Land Forces of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, as saying.

"According to preliminary data there are no dead, but information about the injured and wounded is being clarified," Mironovich added.

The military training facility is located less than 25 km (15 miles) from the Polish border.
