Eight Russian rockets hit the village of Chaplyne on August 24, the Independence Day of Ukraine. President Volodymyr Zelenskyi informed the world about the attack during the UN Security Council meeting.

Five cluster projectiles and three high-explosive projectiles were launched at the village and the railway station. 25 people have died as a result of the attack, including two children. Another 31 people were injured.


Russian shelling destroyed two private houses, damaged thirty residential buildings and thirty-five commercial facilities. At the Chaplyne railway station, five passenger cars caught fire. 

“While Russia claimed that it had targeted the train because it was carrying Ukrainian troops and military equipment on Wednesday, an Associated Press reporter on the ground said there was no visible indication that Ukrainian troops were among the dead, who included children,” states the AP report.
