Ukrainian officials say the Russian military has unleashed a series of strikes on the country’s railways.

Lviv region Governor Maksym Kozytskyy said a Russian missile hit a railway facility in Krasne, about 40 kilometers (25 miles) east of Lviv, early Monday, sparking a fire.

Oleksandr Kamyshin, the head of the state-run Ukrainian railways, said a total of five rail facilities in central and western Ukraine have been hit by the Russian strikes. He said the attacks have delayed at least passenger 16 trains.

There was no immediate information about the damage from the strikes.
