A train station in Lyman, in the eastern Donbas region of Ukraine, was hit by a shell on Thursday (April 28th).

There were burning flames and black smoke could be seen flowing from the station complex, while the sound of bombing could be heard, according to Reuters.

“A shell landed here, the warehouses are now burning, being made of slats with wooden rails,” said a local, Liubchenko Vladislav.

Ukraine’s military command said earlier this week that Russia was trying to bomb Ukraine’s railway infrastructure in order to disrupt the supply of weapons from foreign countries.

This train station in the Ukrainian city of Lyman is just one of the targets the Russian military has in the Donbas region.

Ukraine said on Wednesday it was expecting “extremely difficult weeks (periods)” against the Russian military, which had “already accumulated strength for a major offensive in the east”, a priority for Moscow, AFP notes.

“We have extremely difficult weeks ahead,” Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov warned in a statement on Facebook, calling on Ukrainians to “resilience and unity” after more than two months of conflict with Russia.

“Unfortunately, we will lose more soldiers before we win,” he said, adding that “there will be more destruction and injuries.”

According to him, the Russian army, “already aware of the strategic defeat, will try to cause as much suffering as possible” to the Ukrainian soldiers whom it urged “to resist”, according to agerpres.ro.

On April 18, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky announced the start of Russia’s offensive against the eastern part of the country, some of which has been in the hands of pro-Russian separatists since 2014 and is now Moscow’s top target.

“Implementing agreements (with foreign countries), training and conducting logistics take some time,” said Oleksii Reznikov, but welcomed “aid for Ukraine” in the coming days, he said.
