Attacked by drones: the occupiers destroyed the Shukhevych Museum in Lviv and damaged the university in Dublin where Bandera studied.
In Lviv, as a result of a Russian attack by kamikaze drones, a fire broke out in the morning of January 1 in the museum of UPA Commander-in-Chief Roman Shukhevych. At the same time, the building of the university where UPA leader Stepan Bandera studied caught fire near the regional center.

"Last night, the enemy hit two sites of national memory: the university in Dubliany, where Stepan Bandera studied 100 years ago, and the Roman Shukhevych Museum in Bilohirsh. Symbolic and cynical. A war for our history," the mayor said.
The memorial museum is located in the Zaliznychnyi district of Lviv, in the house where Roman Shukhevych, the general of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army, was killed.
At about 05:37, the head of the JFO said that a powerful fire had broken out there, preliminarily from the fall of the wreckage of an enemy drone. The SES quickly arrived at the scene.

"On the birthday of Stepan Bandera (UPA leader, born January 1, 1909 - Ed.), Muscovites completely destroyed the museum of UPA General Roman Shukhevych in Bilohirsh," the mayor of Lviv emphasized.
According to the State Emergency Service of Ukraine, the destruction and ignition of two historic buildings in Lviv and Dubliany were caused by the fall of drone debris.
