Bloodied toy from Kramatorsk railway station to be sent to UN

A children’s toy drenched in blood, retrieved from the Kramatorsk railway station hit in a Russian missile strike, will be sent to the United Nations.

That’s according to a deputy chief of Ukraine’s Patrol Police, Oleksiy Biloshitskyi, Ukrinform reports.

The photo of this children's toy flew around the world. It became a sad symbol of the terrible catastrophe caused by Russia’s abominable regime at the Kramatorsk railway station with their ‘For the children’ missile… We decided to keep this toy intact, seize it, and forward it to the UN representative office dealing with documenting war crimes and crimes against humanity committed by Nazi Russia," the statement said.

"Today the package was sent to Kyiv, to be forwarded to the UN. Let this toy remind them in their work of the fates of all Ukrainian children destroyed by missiles and Russcist bombs," Biloshitskyi said.

As Ukrinform reported earlier, on April 8, two Russian missiles hit the Kramatorsk railway station, where thousands of civilians were awaiting evacuation.

President Volodymyr Zelensky said the Russians hit the station with a Tochka-U missile.

According to the latest data, as a result of the strike, 57 people were killed and more than a hundred – injured.
