Ukraine: MSF Statement on bombing today on Krmatorsk station

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is horrified by reports of bombing or missile strikes today on Kramatorsk station in Ukraine. MSF was there yesterday, and we saw hundreds of people crowding the station, trying to leave.

Christopher Stokes, MSF Emergency Coordinator: 

“I am horrified by reports of bombing or missile strike today on Kramatorsk station. We were there yesterday, and we saw hundreds of people crowding the station, trying to leave. The hospitals had been urgently calling us to evacuate their patients by train. Most came from Sievierodonetsk and other towns in Luhansk region. We were just in time with this train. Big questions whether we will be able to evacuate more people.”

Below are photos from MSF's third train referral in Ukraine. Between April 6th and 7th, 2022.
