The head of diplomacy of the European Union (EU) Josep Borrell “firmly” condemned the attack on the Kramatorsk train station, in eastern Ukraine, and accused Russia of wanting to “close the evacuation routes” of civilians. .
“Strongly condemned this morning’s blind attack on a station in #Kramatorsk by Russia, which killed dozens of people and left many injured,” Borrell said on Twitter. “This is a new attempt to close the evacuation routes for those fleeing this unjustified war and causing human suffering,” he denounced.
European Council President Charles Michel said on Twitter that it was “horrible to see Russia attack one of the main stations used by civilians evacuating the region where Russia is intensifying its attack.”
At least 35 people were killed and another 100 wounded this Friday in a rocket attack on the Kramatorsk station, where hundreds of people were waiting for a train to leave the region.
Several charred cars and the remains of a missile were visible in front of the Kramatorsk station. The place was littered with abandoned suitcases, broken glass and debris. The interior of the station was covered in blood, often trampled and spread out into the street, due to the movement of bodies.
