Death Toll from Kramatorsk Missile Strike on Civilians Rises to 57

The death toll from the missile strike on civilians at the train station in Ukraine’s Kramatorsk has risen to 57 people, Donetsk Region Governor Pavlo Kyrylenko said on April 10.

Kyrylenko also said that the strike wounded 109 people.

Ukrainian Prosecutor-General Iryna Veneditktova told Sky News that the strike was “absolutely” a war crime.

Veneditktova said that Ukraine has evidence that the missile was Russian.

Meanwhile, the Russian Defense Ministry said that the missile was Ukrainian.

The Russian Defense Ministry initially said that it had used high-precision rockets to attack three railway stations in Donbas, then later denied any involvement.

Pascal Hundt, head of the International Committee of the Red Cross in Ukraine, told Sky News that the strike on the train station made evacuation efforts “even more difficult.”

“People fear to take the train anymore,” Hundt said.
