Kramatorsk train station attack: Dozens killed, Ukraine says
Dozens of people have been killed in a Russian rocket attack on a Ukrainian train station. More than 30 people are said to have been killed at the station, which the Ukrainian state railway company said was being used for evacuees.
The station is located in the eastern Ukrainian city of Kramatorsk in Donetsk. In addition to the dozens of dead, more than a hundred people were also injured. The station reports that two rockets have been fired. According to BBC News, the place is known as one of the main evacuation routes in the east of the country.
Donetsk governor Pavlo Kyrylenko accuses the Russians of deliberately killing civilians. “They wanted to create panic and fear, they wanted to kill as many civilians as possible,” said the governor, who believes thousands of people were at the station at the time of the attack.
This video as well as photos circulating show the words “for the children” scrawled on the Tochka-U rocket fired by Russian forces on Kramatorsk today. Kremlin propaganda has falsely claimed Ukraine is cynically attacking children. Reality: Russia is. pic.twitter.com/9n0SCcH8DO
