Donetsk, Apr 8 - DAN. The missile attack on the Kramatorsk railway station was deliberately launched by Ukrainian militants, DPR Defence's deputy chief of staff Eduard Basurin said.

“The latest provocation that took place in Kramatorsk - actually the Ukrainian authorities did not conceal the fact that they were preparing another provocation. Immediately they started their publicity stunt blaming Russia. But the devices that people have, I mean, phones, cameras, they recorded that these are Tochka-U debris," he said.

Basurin drew attention to the fact that the attack was launched when lots of evacuees were present at the station.

At least 30 people are believed to have been killed.

A missile hit the Kramatorsk railway station on Friday morning when evacuation of civilians was underway. The DPR Territorial Defence HQ identified the missile as Tochka-U-type, which is not in service in either the Russian army or the Donbass Republics forces. *ot
