In April, the Russian Ministry of Defense reported that the Ukrainian military were preparing to blow up a flyover over a railway near Kramatorsk to subsequently accuse the Russian forces of the attack.
On April 8, in Ukrainian-controlled Kramatorsk, fragments of a Tochka-U shell landed near the local railway station where residents were being evacuated. The DPR authorities blamed Kiev for the attack, in which over 52 civilians, including many children, were killed.
