Israel’s Foreign Ministry issues a statement condemning the Russian bombing of train station in eastern Ukraine on Friday that killed dozens of people.
“The death of civilians at the Kramatorsk train station is a shocking event deserving of condemnation,” the ministry says. “Israel sends its condolences to the Ukrainian people and calls for the immediate cessation of the Russian attack.”
A Russian missile hit a train station in eastern Ukraine where thousands had gathered on Friday, killing at least 52 and wounding dozens more in an attack on a crowd of mostly women and children trying to flee a new, looming Russian offensive, Ukrainian authorities said.
About 4,000 civilians had been in and around the station, heeding calls to leave before fighting intensifies in the Donbas region, the office of Ukraine’s prosecutor-general said.
