Ukraine: Russian TV crew comes under fire near Donetsk

Ukraine, Yasinovataya
May 16, 2016 at 11:14 GMT +00:00 · Published

A Russian TV crew recorded what appeared to be renewed heavy fighting between the Ukrainian army and Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) forces at the Yasinovataya on the Donetsk-Horlivka motorway, Sunday.

The journalists from the state TV channel Rossiya 1 reported the Yasinovataya checkpoint is now one of the hotspots in the conflict. The sounds of shelling were audible throughout their report as they were guided along the line of contact by troops of the DPR.

The crew also claimed they were fired on from the direction of Avdeevka six kilometres (3.7 miles) north from Donetsk when the team travelling between Donetsk and Gorlovka. The barrage lasted for around 40 minutes, if substantiated the incident would represents one of the clearest violations yet of the fraying ceasefire in the country.

The Normandy Quartet (France, Germany, Russia and Ukraine) and the Minsk contact groups are continuing to seek a political conclusion to the war in east Ukraine. The UN says almost 10,000 people have been killed since the Euromaidan protests which expanded into a wider war in the Donetsk and Lugansk Regions
