The evacuation passenger trains that had to stop due to the shelling of a railroad by Russian forces have been able to continue their journeys, Donetsk Governor Pavlo Kyrylenko reported via the Telegram messenger on April 8.

On April 7, a Russian warplane launched an airstrike on a railway section near the town of Barvinkove in Kharkiv Oblast, thus blocking evacuation trains in Donetsk Oblast.

Kyrylenko said there were no casualties among the passengers as a result of the shelling.

He reiterated that the evacuation trains are scheduled to run daily.

"With Russians concentrating their efforts in Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts, it's better for the civilian population to leave these regions," the governor said. "After all, the invaders consider civilians as targets, neglecting not only the rules of warfare, but also the elementary norms of human morality."
