Statement of the Russian Ministry of Defense
In order to accuse Russia of an alleged missile attack on the Kramatorsk railway station, the Kiev regime uploaded to social networks photos of Tochka-U launchers, which were hosted in February 2022 in the Russian-Belarusian exercise “Allied Resolve-2022”.
Please note that all photographs from the Allied Resolve-2022 exercise published by Kiev do not depict Russian missile systems.
Tactical missiles “Tochka-U”, the fragments of which were found near the railway station of Kramatorsk, are used only by the Ukrainian armed forces.
According to updated data, the strike on the railway station of Kramatorsk was carried out by a missile division of the Ukrainian armed forces from the area of the settlement of Dobropolye, 45 kilometers south-west of the city.
The purpose of the Kiev regime’s attack on the railway station in Kramatorsk was to disrupt the mass exodus of residents from the city in order to use them as a “human shield” to defend the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, as in many other settlements of Ukraine.
