SLOVIANSK, June 04. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukrainian servicemen have shot and killed more than 25 people in the hospital of Krasny Liman, chairman of the Supreme Council of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic Denis Pushilin told ITAR-TASS by telephone.

"According to preliminary information, more than 25 people have been killed but we fear the toll might be higher," Pushilin said. "Shooting at the sick and wounded is not even genocide. The immoral actions by Kiev's junta defy explanation."

He said the precise casualty toll from Sloviansk fighting was not available. "Figures differ greatly. We'll know later," Pushilin said.

A representative of people’s militia said on June 3 that Ukrainian military forces had shelled a hospital in the city of Krasny Liman. In his words, shells hit the roof of the building, damaged the hospital fence and broke down all windows.

However, several commuter trains were cancelled over massive damages on the railway track and the platform at a railway station in the city of Krasny Liman in Ukrainian air strikes, the press service of the Donetsk railway authority said on Wednesday. Administrative and economic buildings, platforms and the railway track at railway station Krasny Liman were damaged in the air strike, the press service said. A surgeon was killed in the attack on the hospital, the press service also noted.

Meanwhile, militia stated that Ukrainian military forces had shot down a brigade of railway workers from the city of Sloviansk in Krasny Liman on June 3. “Railway workers who remained alive are being kept in captivity. Snipers do not permit them to go out,” the militiaman said, not elaborating where people were locked up.
