Ukraine LIVE: Putin forced to tear up plans after attack on railroad hamstrings Russia

Date:


Officials at a vocational school in eastern Ukraine have destroyed claims from Russia that hundreds of Ukrainian troops were killed in a missile strike there.

They have insisted a rocket simply blew out windows and damaged classrooms.

The Russian Defence Ministry had said its missiles hit two temporary bases housing 1,300 Ukrainian troops in the city on Saturday, killing 600 of them.

But Yana Pristupa, the school’s deputy director, dismissed claims from Russia of hitting a troop concentration.

She told the Associated Press on Monday: “Nobody saw a single spot of blood anywhere. Everyone saw yesterday that no one carried out any bodies. It’s just people cleaning up.”
