Vladimir Putin's faltering war in Ukraine experienced another episode of calamity when Russian soldiers bombed a train station where hundreds of the country's dead troops were stored.
Ukrainian media reported that rocket fire hit the station in Kharkiv, destroying refrigerators containing the bodies of dead Russian soldiers.
Serhiy Bratchuk, Spokesperson of Odesa Oblast Military Administration, revealed the news, saying: "The Russians destroyed the refrigerated wagons with the bodies of their comrades in the service, hitting the railway station in Kharkiv with rockets."

Pictures shown on Censor.net show the aftermath of the strike, with a wrecked train totally derailed and the station itself crumbling to the ground.
According to preliminary data from the press service of the prosecutor's office of the Kharkiv region, the troops of the Russian Federation fired from the 'Smerch' rocket salvo system.
Ukrainian forces have recently made counter-offensive gains in the country's second biggest city, but Russia continues to pelt the city with missiles, targeting civilian infrastructure.
A missile strike on a power station September 11 sparked a major fire and plunged Kharkiv into darkness for hours, reported AP.
Local officials said that on the same night a missile hit a resedential buidling at about midnight, killing one person.

“It’s dangerous to live in Kharkiv, every day is dangerous. It’s dangerous during the day and night,” said Kateryna Protsenko, a 29-year-old veterinarian living across the street from the apartment building.
“The nights are sleepless, but anyway you continue to live because you have a family and you need to survive and work somehow,” she said.
The missile strikes continue, as do reports of death.
“Russia carried out a rocket attack against a peaceful city, where peaceful people live, just the same as the people living in the United States of America, or anywhere else in the world, who go to school, have their ordinary lives, raise their children,” Kharkiv regional police chief Volodymyr Timoshko said.
