Ukraine-Russia War: Kramatorsk train station missile marked ‘for children,’ kills 39

The Jerusalem Post reports: “At least 39 people were killed and 87 wounded on Friday when two Russian missiles reportedly struck a railway station in Kramatorsk in eastern Ukraine as the Russian invasion of Ukraine continues into its 44th day, Ukraine’s Donetsk Oblast Governor Pavlo Kyrylenko said.

The station, located in the Donetsk Oblast, is used to evacuate civilians from areas under bombardment from Russian forces.

About 4,000 people, most of them elderly, women and children, were at the railway station when it was hit by Russian rockets, Mayor Oleksander Honcharenko said.

It is unclear which kind of missile was fired, with Ukrainian public figures having stated alternatively that it was an Iskander or a Tochka. However, only Russia has access to Iskanders.

On one of the missiles was written the words ‘for children,’ with many of the evacuees at the train station consisting of children, something UK Ambassador to Ukraine Melinda Simmons tweeted as being ‘unspeakably brutal Russian depravity.’…”
