DONETSK, March 14. /TASS/. The falling fragments of a Tochka-U missile have killed at least 20 people, including children, and left another nine injured in Donetsk, Head of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Denis Pushilin told the Rossiya-1 TV channel on Monday.
“Although the Tochka-U missile was downed, its falling fragments caused much damage and civilian casualties, which is the worst thing. People were just standing in line at an ATM machine, there were people at a public transport stop. According to preliminary reports, 20 people were killed and nine suffered injuries. There are children among the dead,” he pointed out.
According to Pushilin, the missile “carried a cluster charge.” He added that “had it not been downed, it would have caused a lot more casualties.”
Eighteen people were taken to the hospital after the missile fired by the Ukrainian military had fallen in downtown Donetsk, the DPR Health Ministry said. Read the rest by CLICKING HERE.
