EU leaders have strongly condemned today’s Russian missile attack against a train station in Kramatorsk.
“The missile attack this morning on a train station used for evacuations of civilians in Ukraine is despicable,” European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said on Twitter.
“This is yet another attempt to close escape routes for those fleeing this unjustified war and cause human suffering,” said EU High Representative Josep Borrell.
Borrell and Von der Leyen are both visiting Ukraine today.
The President of the European Council, Charles Michel, also tweeted: “Horrifying to see Russia strike one of the main stations used by civilians evacuating the region where Russia is stepping up its attack. Action is needed: more sanctions on Russia and more weapons to Ukraine are under way from the EU. 5th package of EU sanctions just approved.”
