Russian troops demolish 6 train stations in Ukraine

Oleksandr Kamyshin, head of the Ukrainian Railway Authority, said the Russian attacks targeted six train stations in the central and western regions of the country, causing serious damage.

Kamyshin said the flights of at least 14 trains were delayed by the attacks.

Dnipro region governor Valentin Reznichenko said Russian missiles hit railway infrastructure in the region, injuring one person and hindering the movement of trains.

The Ukrainian military also reported targeting railways in the Kirovohrad region, noting that there were unspecified losses.

On the other hand, Pavlo Kirilenko, governor of the Donetsk region of eastern Ukraine, said Russian attacks on the region on Tuesday killed 21 civilians and injured 27.

Kirilenko added in an online post that the figure, including 10 previously announced deaths at a coking plant in the city of Avdiivka, is the region’s highest daily death toll since last month’s attack on a train station in the city of Kramatorsk.

On the other hand, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a telephone conversation with his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron that the West should stop supplying arms to Ukraine.

“The West can help stop these atrocities by exerting appropriate influence over the Kiev authorities and by stopping the supply of arms to Ukraine,” the Kremlin said in a statement.

Putin accused the Ukrainian armed forces of committing war crimes, and the European Union of “ignoring them”.

The Russian president added that despite Kiev’s “contradictory and unwillingness to work hard, the Russian side remains open to dialogue” to find a way out of the conflict.

The Kremlin said Putin had responded to French concerns over global food security that “the situation in this region is mainly complicated by sanctions imposed by Western countries” against Russia.
