Tochka-U struck a train station in eastern Ukraine killing multiple civilians

According to Ukrainian officials, a Russian slogan that translates as “For the children” was written on the side of a Tochka-U missile that struck a train station in eastern Ukraine on Friday and killed dozens of people.

Two missiles struck the train station in Kramatorsk, which is located in the Donetsk oblast, killing at least 50 people and injuring more than 100 others, according to reports.

The slogan inscribed in white on the side of the Tochka-U ballistic missile in images and video taken at the scene of the attack translates as a message that the missile was delivered in retaliation for children that were killed probably in Donbas before the war, rather than a message that the missile was intended to be used against children, according to some analysts.

As Western intelligence and NATO warned Russian soldiers were relocating away from the northern Kyiv region and will concentrate their efforts on the east, Ukrainian civilians flocked to the railway station on Friday to escape from the eastern Donbas region.

“Russians knew that the train station in Kramatorsk was full of civilians waiting to be evacuated. Yet they [struck] it with a ballistic missile, killing at least 30 and injuring at least a hundred people,” Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba tweeted after the strike.

Despite the Ukrainian accusations, Russian officials claim that this was a false-flag operation from the Ukrainian side.
