On April 8, the Russians launched a Tochka-U strike at the Kramatorsk railway station when there were thousands of people who were trying to evacuate from the Donbas, killing 50 people, 38 of whom died immediately
This was stated by the head of the board of Ukrainian Railways Oleksandr Kamyshin.
"2 missiles landed at the Kramatorsk railway station. There are victims. We are clarifying the details", he said.
The head of the Donetsk RMA, Pavlo Kyrylenko, added that the Russians launched a missile attack with a cluster Iskander.
"With a cluster Iskander, the Russian fascists hit the Kramatorsk railway station. The police and rescuers working on the spot report dozens of dead and wounded people", he said.
Thousands of people were at the station during the missile strike as the evacuation of Donbas residents to safer areas of Ukraine continues.
"The rashists knew well where they were aiming and what they wanted: they wanted to sow panic and fear, they wanted to take as many civilians hostage as possible", Pavlo Kyrylenko emphasized.
Pavlo Kyrylenko later reported that 50 people had died as a result of the strike.
"Fifty dead, five of them are children. We have such a number of victims at this hour as a result of the strike of the Russian occupation troops by Tochka-U on the railway station of Kramatorsk", he wrote.
According to the head of the RMA, 98 people were hospitalized. He noted that the number of victims will constantly change, because it is expected that other victims will contact hospitals within one or two days.
"Of the 98 wounded who were taken to medical facilities, 16 were children, 46 women and 36 men. Twelve of them died in the hospital. 38 people died immediately at the station", said Pavlo Kyrylenko.
