Verbatim: "Like the massacre in Bucha, like many other war crimes in Russia, the missile strike on Kramatorsk must be one of the charges at the tribunal, which is bound to happen."

"All the efforts of the world will be aimed at establishing every minute: who did what, who gave the orders. Where did the rocket come from, who was carrying it, who gave the order and how the strike was coordinated. It is inevitable that the people responsible will be held to account."

Details: Volodymyr Zelenskyy stressed that Ukraine expects a stern, global response to this war crime.

He noted that Russian state propagandists were in such a hurry to shift responsibility for the attack to Ukrainian forces that they accidentally blamed Russia.

"RIA Novosti reported that the strike on Kramatorsk had been inflicted when the missiles were still in the air. The day before, other Russian propagandists were spreading threats to all those who escaped from Donbas by rail," Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.

He said dozens of injured people have been hospitalised as a result of the rocket attack. According to the latest update, 50 people died, including 5 children.

Background:

On April 8, the Russian invaders launched cluster shells from the "Tochka-U" missile complex in the occupied territories of Luhansk region, at the Kramatorsk railway station, where about 4,000 people had been waiting for evacuation.

In his reaction to the crime of the Russian invaders, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy called on the world to react harshly, because unpunished evil will cause even more suffering in the future.
According to preliminary estimates, the missile attack on the Kramatorsk railway station killed 50 people, including 5 children.
