Liz Truss, the Foreign Secretary, said that after the “horrific rocket attacks on civilians,” the UK was punishing those who “prop up the illegal breakaway regions” and those who were “complicit in atrocities” against Ukrainians. The sanctions were announced today.

She said that ministers would keep going after anyone who  “aid and abet” Vladimir Putin invade.

People of all ages were killed in Friday’s attack on a train station.

A lot of people in the wider Donetsk region were waiting for evacuation trains to leave because of heavy Russian shelling.

Volodymyr Zelensky, the country’s president, blamed Russia for the attack, but Moscow said it didn’t do it.
