ROSTOV-ON-DON, July 04, /ITAR-TASS/. The mayor of the town of Donetsk in the southern Russian Rostov Region on the border with Ukraine, Yury Tarasenko said Friday that a nearby area was shelled from the direction of Ukraine.
Tarasenko told Itar-Tass the incident occurred some 1.5 kilometers from the state border in the village of Devyatka, which is situated near a refugee camp. Some 5-7 shells, apparently from artillery guns, hit Russian territory.
He said investigators, prosecutors and police officers went to the site to record the damage but fire was opened on them from Ukraine. “No one was injured,” he said, adding that one car was damaged.
Kiev's punitive operation against federalization supporters in Ukraine's southeastern regions bordering Russia, which involves armored vehicles, heavy artillery and attack aviation, has left hundreds of people dead, destroyed buildings and forced tens of thousands to flee Ukraine to Russia.
Fierce military attacks of the pro-Kiev forces on the country’s Southeast resumed after President Pyotr Poroshenko, who had been elected in late May and taken office on June 7, ended the 10-day ceasefire in the Southeast on Monday. When the truce was in place, there were reports that it was repeatedly violated by Kiev.
