RUSSIAN missiles today blitzed a school in eastern Ukraine — ripping huge craters in a playground.
There are now fears the town of Kramatorsk will be the next to fall.
The deafening double blast sent a Sun team scrambling for cover as the missiles struck 200 yards from where we were sleeping.
The strike tore the two-storey building to pieces and caused 20m-wide playground craters.
There was no air raid siren ahead of the attack but soldiers said the building was empty and no one was hurt.
Troops had been using the kitchen to feed legions of reinforcements bolstering nearby Bakhmut’s defence.
President Volodymyr Zelensky’s office said that military chiefs were determined to reinforce their defensive lines in Bakhmut, 20 miles east of Kramatorsk.
Russia’s Wagner Group mercenaries have launched a months-long scorched-earth assault.
Troops are trying to encircle the town and last week blew up a bridge.
Meanwhile, horrific footage showed a Ukrainian prisoner of war being executed by his captors after daring to say, “Glory to Ukraine.”
His killers shout: “Die, b**ch!”
