22 killed in Russian bombing at train station in Ukraine | Europe | T.W.

At least 22 people were killed and 50 injured in a Russian missile attack on a train station in the Dnipropetrovsk region on Wednesday night (08.24.2022), Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said. The President confirmed that the projectiles had directly hit the wagons at the Chapelle station, four of which caught fire, and it was feared that the death toll would rise.

In a late-night video message, Zelensky said there were 22 confirmed deaths, up from the first report of 15 deaths. During his address to the United Nations Security Council, he condemned such attacks as becoming routine in his country as it “fights for its freedom against Russian terrorism.” “This is how we live every day. This is how Russia is preparing for this Security Council meeting,” he said.

The attack happened on Ukraine’s Independence Day in 1991, when it broke away from the Soviet Union. The date coincides with the sixth month since Russian troops began their invasion of Ukraine on February 24. Not long ago, Zelensky promised that Ukrainians would fight against the invaders “to the end” and without “any concessions.”

“We are going to drive out the invaders”

Zelensky had previously said there was a possibility of the invaders launching attacks in various parts of Ukraine, while the US had warned that Russia might intensify its bombing. The president explained that the dead included five people who were burned in their vehicle and an 11-year-old boy whose house collapsed. “I have no doubt that we will expel the invaders from our country. No trace of this evil will remain in our free Ukraine,” the head of state said at night.

European Council President Charles Michel condemned the Russian attack. “Many civilians were killed and injured in the missile attack on the Chabilne railway station on Ukraine’s Independence Day. Our thoughts are with the families. War crimes will not go unpunished,” Michael said on his Twitter account. “International solidarity with Ukraine will not be abandoned,” he added.
