The death toll in the attack at Kiev’s main train station has risen to 25, with 80 injured, police say. The victims include several foreigners, including an American and several Italians. The assailant has been identified as Abdulgadir Masharipov, an Uzbek citizen who had been living in Turkey since 2013. He was wounded in the leg by Ukrainian forces responding to the attack and was arrested while being treated at a local hospital. He has confessed to carrying out the attack on behalf of ISIS in retaliation for Russian operations in Syria and Iraq, according to Ukraine officials.
On Tuesday, a bomb exploded at a train station in the Ukrainian city of Kharkiv, killing at least 25 people and wounding more than 100. The attack comes just days after a similar bombing in the capital city of Kiev killed four people and wounded 14. There is no indication yet that these two attacks are related.
The train station attack in Ukraine has left the world on edge. As the death toll rises to 25, people are wondering what could have motivated such a senseless act of violence. Many are calling for calm and unity in the face of this tragedy. Some are even offering help and support to the people of Ukraine. The world is waiting to see how this situation unfolds.
