At least 50 were killed in a missile strike targeting a crowded train station in the eastern city of Kramatorsk, which had been a main point of evacuation as the area prepared for a scaling up of Russia’s offensive in Ukraine.

From the New York Times:

The head of the Donetsk Military Administration, Pavlo Kyrylenko, says that 50 people are dead in train station attack, including 12 who died in the hospital. Another 98 were wounded, including 16 children, he says.

The mayor of Kramatorsk said there were 4,000 people at the city’s railway station in eastern Ukraine at the time of the attack, and that most were women, children and older people.

In a video shared by the Ukrainian government of the aftermath of a strike on a train station in the eastern city of Kramatorsk, the inscription “for the children” could be seen scrawled in white lettering on the side of the missile.
