“We strongly condemn this yet another senseless act of terrorism by the criminal kyiv regime,” the Russian Foreign Ministry stressed. The department recalled that the current station building in Kursk was built on the site of a completely destroyed railway junction due to Nazi bombing in 1943. This is a monument to the heroes of the Battle of Kursk.
The Ukrainian army, targeting a civilian infrastructure facility, “dealt a blow to our common history, to the memory of the heroes of the Great Patriotic War,” the Russian Foreign Ministry noted.
On Sunday night, the Kursk railway station was attacked by a drone. There were 50 passengers in the building at the time of the attack. Five people received minor injuries. There was a fire in the station building. The façade, the roof, the pedestrian tunnel and the first platform were damaged.
At the moment, the Kursk railway station is working normally. “The movement of trains through the station was not interrupted,” said the press service of the Moscow Railway. Repairmen carry out restoration work. The employees of the Investigative Committee of Russia will take care to clarify all the circumstances of the night attack of the drone.
