Ukrainian Railways reported that the Russian military struck five train stations in Ukraine on Monday, killing at least five people.
The railway strike came just hours after the highest-level American visit to Kyiv since Russia launched its war on the eastern European country.
In a statement uploaded on the Telegram app, Ukrainian Railways CEO Oleksandr Kamyshin stated that train stations in central and western Ukraine “came under fire” in a one-hour period on Monday morning.
Kamyshin revealed that there had been casualties, but he did not say how many people had been injured or killed.
Maksym Kozytsky, the regional governor of Lviv, Ukraine, said in a post on Facebook that an “explosion” occurred around 8:30 a.m. “as a result of a missile strike,” a railroad station in Krasne’s southwest district was destroyed.
“One missile was destroyed in the Lviv region by anti-aircraft missile units of the West Air Command of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine,” Kozytsky said.
Kozytsky added that the missiles flew to the west of Ukraine from the south-eastern direction, which the Russian occupiers fired from a strategic aircraft, a Tu-95.
