Ukraine reported Friday that over 30 persons were killed and over 100 others injured in a Russian missile attack on the Kramatorsk train station.

Kramatorsk was one of Ukraine's most eastern stations, and the governor of Donetsk reported that thousands of people were there at the time, attempting to board trains out of the area.

According to the head of Ukrainian rail, two rockets struck the station. Kramatorsk was well recognized as a vital evacuation route out of eastern Ukraine, and local authorities posted information on trains departing the city.

Pavlo Kyrylenko, commander of the Donetsk regional military administration, stated that first responders reported "dozens" of casualties in the aftermath of the attack.

"Russian fascists launched an Iskander missile attack on the Kramatorsk railway station," Kyrylenko wrote on Telegram.

Kyrylenko stated that thousands of people were at the station during the missile hit as residents of the Donetsk region were evacuated to safer areas of Ukraine.

"The rashists [Russian fascists] were fully aware of their targets and objectives: they want to take as many peaceful people as possible hostage and destroy everything Ukrainian," he added.

Russia denies responsibility for an attack on a Ukrainian railway station.

According to Reuters, over 4,000 people, most of whom were elderly, women, and children, were at the railway station when it was struck by Russian missiles.

Volodymyr Zelensky, Ukraine's president, published a gruesome 10-second video of the attack's aftermath on his official Telegram channel.

Russia's defense ministry denied attacking the station via the RIA news agency.

According to Reuters, Eduard Basurin, the commander of the separatists in Donetsk, has already denounced reports of the strike to the Russian news outlet Tass as a "provocation" by Ukraine.

Russia is being investigated for war crimes in Ukraine.

Joe Biden called for the prosecution of Vladimir Putin for war crimes on Monday in response to the killings of civilians in the Ukrainian city of Bucha.

Biden stated that the photographs emanating from Bucha justified labeling Putin a "war criminal," but "we need to gather the information first." We must continue to supply Ukraine with the armaments it requires to fight, and we must ascertain all the facts so that this can be an actual...war crime prosecution."

"This guy (Putin) is brutal, and what is happening in Bucha is outrageous, and it has been witnessed by everyone," Biden added.

Ursula von der Leyen, the chairperson of the European Commission, says the EU is prepared to send joint investigation teams to Ukraine to document alleged Russian war crimes and crimes against humanity.
