War Ukraine

Russian invaders launched a missile attack on the Chaplyne railway station in the Dnipropetrovsk region. The passenger cars caught fire due to the enemy attack. Currently, it is known that at least 22 people were killed, and about 50 more were injured. Rescuers have already contained the fire, and search operations are ongoing.

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said, speaking at the United Nations Security Council meeting, “Four passenger cars are currently on fire… At least 22 people have been killed, and about 50 people have been injured. Rescuers are working. But unfortunately, the death toll may rise. This is how we live every day. This is how Russia prepared for this UN Security Council meeting.”

In turn, Kyrylo Tymoshenko, Deputy Head of the President’s Office, said that the Russians had hit a private house in the Dnipropetrovsk region on 24 August. The body of an 11-year-old boy was found under the rubble. Local residents managed to save a woman and a 13-year-old boy.

“Later, the enemy attacked the locality once again – first with one missile and then with three more. The first attack damaged the railway station premises, and the following ones hit the railway station,” Tymoshenko said.
