France says deadly strike on Ukraine railway station is a crime against humanity

A strike blamed by Ukraine on Russia against a railway station in the east of the country that left at least 50 people dead can be classified as a crime against humanity, France said on Friday.

“They hit a station where there are refugees, civilians and so this can be seen as a crime against humanity,” Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian told France 5 television on Friday, calling for experts to head to the scene in Kramatorsk to gather evidence so the perpetrators can be held to account.

At least 52 people were killed, including five children, and hundreds more injured in a rocket attack on a train station in the eastern Ukrainian city that is being used for civilian evacuations, according to Donetsk region governor Pavlo Kyrylenko.

“These crimes cannot remain unpunished. Experts must go there quickly and document urgently to provide proof of crimes against humanity,” Le Drian continued.
