Kiev accuses Russia of bombing Ukrainian cities from the site of the Zaporijjia power plant.

On the western bank of the Dnieper, opposite the power plant, Nikopol was hit several times, and a few kilometers further north, a dozen houses were destroyed in shelling on Marhanets.

At the same time, Russian artillery continues its strikes in eastern Ukraine.

Bombings hit the city of Slovyansk and caused significant damage without causing any casualties.

Konstiantin Daineko, resident of Solvyansk: "This is the second time I have seen an attack, the first time was in Kramatorsk when a missile hit the station during the evacuation. There it was much more frightening, because you didn't expect it, it was in the middle of the day, and there were these explosions, while there I was sleeping, I felt dirt in my mouth and at first I didn't even understand what was going on."

In Kramatorsk, a strike left a gaping hole and destroyed part of the rails in front of the station.

According to the city's governor, there were no casualties.

On April 8, 50 people were killed when the station was bombed in broad daylight while the city was evacuated.

Most of the Donetsk region is in the hands of the Russians and their separatist allies, but some towns, such as Slovyansk and Kramatorsk, still remain outside their control.

On the diplomatic front, the European Union may decide within a week to suspend the existing agreement with Russia on the issuance of tourist visas.

The information was revealed by the Financial Times, which quoted three European officials.

Freezing the 2007 agreement with Russia would make it more difficult and expensive for Russians to obtain European visas.

The decision could only be taken by unanimity of the 27.
