Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said Friday about 30 people have been killed in a missile strike at a railway station in the eastern city of Kramatorsk, and claimed nearly 300 have been wounded.

In an address to Finland’s parliament on Friday, Zelensky said the β€œRussian military hit the railway terminal,” adding β€œthere are witnesses, there are videos, there are remnants of the missiles and dead people.”

He described the railway terminal as an β€œordinary” and β€œrank-and-file,” with β€œpeople crowded waiting for the trains to be evacuated to the safe territory.”

β€œWhy do they need this war against Ukraine? Why do they need to hit civilians with missiles? Why this cruelty that the world has witnessed in Bucha and other cities liberated by the Ukrainian army?,” Zelensky asked.

Whilst saying that those β€œfighting for freedom” should be supported, Zelensky added that β€œordinary people understand these things and this concept more than some influential leaders. Smaller countries understand it better than some of the bigger countries.”

Friday’s virtual address to the Finnish parliament was Zelensky’s twenty third address to a foreign parliament since Russia invaded Ukraine.
