Russia Massacres More Innocents on Ukraine's Independence Day

Linkedin Share

As Russia’s War in Ukraine continues to stagnate, Vladimir Putin’s military machine is increasingly turning toward terror and genocide in an attempt to demoralize the sovereign, neighboring nation.

This has been a key facet of the Kremlin’s strategy, having threatened any interlopers with nuclear war should they try to make the invasion their business.  How long this international stalemate can last is anyone’s guess, but with each new massacre of innocent civilians, the clock begins to tick a bit quicker.

The latest horrendous attack comes on Ukraine’s Independence Day, no less, targeting citizens on mass transit.

Russian forces Wednesday launched a rocket attack on a Ukrainian train station on the embattled country’s Independence Day, killing 22 people, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said after warning for days that Moscow might attempt “something particularly cruel” this week.

The lethal attack took place in Chaplyne, a town of about 3,500 people in the central Dnipropetrovsk region, Ukrainian news agencies quoted Zelenskyy as telling the U.N. Security Council via video. The president’s office also reported that an 11-year-old child was killed by rocket fire earlier in the day in the settlement.

Zelenskyy was heartbroken.

“Chaplyne is our pain today,” Zelenskyy said in his nightly video address to the nation.

The attack is said to have targeted 5 passenger rail cars, and injured 20-plus civilians in addition to those killed.
