The Russian Ministry of Defense said that the message about the inflicted missile attack by the Russian military is a fake
- On April 8, the Russian armed forces did not have any fire missions in the city of Kramatorsk and were not planned.
- We emphasize that the Tochka-U tactical missiles, the fragments of which were found near the railway station of Kramatorsk and published by eyewitnesses, are used only by the Ukrainian armed forces.
- On March 14, 2022, a division of the 19th separate missile brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine attacked the center of Donetsk with a similar Tochka-U missile, as a result of which 17 people died on the spot and another 36 civilians were injured.
As a result of the missile attack, about 30 people were killed and about 100 people were injured.
The Russian side does not have the Tochka-U missile at its disposal, the fragments of which fell in close proximity to the railway station.
