The windows of the Kyiv Central Railway Station were damaged by an explosive shockwave as a result of missile attacks on the capital city early on Oct. 10, Ukrainian national rail operator Ukrzaliznytsia reported on Facebook.

“The blast wave has damaged the windows of the Central Railway Station’s building in Kyiv, but the station continues to operate,” the company said.

It is noted the disembarkation and boarding of passengers on trains is being carried out through the western and eastern underground passages, which at the same time are serving as a shelter.

Ukrzaliznytsia has also warned about possible delays in the western direction due to damage to the rail network.

According to the company, reserve diesel locomotives are already being prepared to ensure continuous traffic.

Russia launched a series of missile strikes at the capital city, in particular the central districts, early on Oct. 10.

Many other Ukrainian oblasts have also been attacked by Russian missile strikes in the same period.
