The railway station was hit while an evacuation of civilians was underway. According to local authorities, about 4,000 people – mostly women and children – were at the railway station at the time of the attack. The number of casualties is feared to grow.
Save the Children Ukraine Country Director Pete Walsh, said:
“It is an intolerable tragedy that civilians trying to flee for their lives are the victims of this senseless attack. At least four children are dead and numerous others wounded, adding to the growing number of child casualties in this conflict that is spiralling out of control.”
