An updated interactive map with shelters for the Lviv residents was created in the city. Currently, there are about 6,000 places to hide in case of an emergency situation. According to Lviv Mayor Andrii Sadovyi, this should be enough for a safe stay for all residents.
Shelters are located in the underground rooms of residential buildings and shopping centres. Residents are urged to check access to their basement and talk about it with neighbours.
