The senior official urged the media to follow the statements of the Russian Ministry of Defense, which bars its Armed Forces from using this type of missile and warns Ukrainian troops against using them.
Peskov pointed out that the Russian armed forces do not use this type of missile. Moreover, there were no combat missions in Kramatorsk and they were not planned for today.
For its part, the Russian Ministry of Defense called Kiev’s statement blaming Moscow for the attack on the Kramatorsk railway station provocative and absolutely false.
It reported that the Tochka-U tactical missiles, the remains of which were found near the impact site, and posted by witnesses, are being used by the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
It recalled that, on March 14, a similar missile of the Ukrainian forces hit the center of Donetsk city, killing 17 people on the spot and injuring another 36.
