On April 8 Russia launched two missile strikes on the railway station in Kramatorsk, where hundreds of civilians were waiting for evacuation trains. The invaders used cluster munitions, fired from a Tochka-U missile system. The attack has drawn wide condemnation around the world, as more than 50 people have been confirmed dead, and at least a hundred more injured.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that Russia's strike on the railway station would be one of the charges at a war crime tribunal to investigate the aggressor country's atrocities against the Ukrainian people.
