The European Union condemns Russia’s deadly bombardment of a railway station in Ukraine and warns those “responsible for Russian rocket terror will be held accountable.

“The EU strongly condemns another heinous attack by Russia on civilians,” EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell tweets, as the death toll from the strike in Chaplyne rises to 25.

Borrell does not say how Brussels intends to hold Moscow to account, but next week he will host meetings of EU foreign and defense ministers in Prague to discuss the crisis.
