Russian invaders shelled a railway station in central Ukraine during the night on April 13, the Chairman of Ukrainian Railways Oleksandr Kamyshin said.

“For security reasons, we have changed the route and schedule for 17 passenger trains,” Kamyshin wrote on his Telegram messenger channel.

“This has led to delays to these trains. The longest delay was seven hours, 23 minutes. But for us now safety is a key priority.”

None of the passengers and railway workers were injured as a result of the shelling, Kamyshin added.

He did not say exactly which railway station was fired upon.

On Apr. 8, Russia launched two missile strikes on the railway station in Kramatorsk, where hundreds of civilians were waiting for evacuation trains. The Head of the Donetsk Regional State Administration, Pavlo Kyrylenko, said that the invaders used cluster munitions, delivered by Tochka-U missiles. The world condemned the Russian atrocity.

According to Kyrylenko, as a result of the missile attack on the railway station in Kramatorsk, 52 people were killed and another 109 were wounded.
