ROSTOV-ON-DON, July 04, /ITAR-TASS/. More than 10 employees of the Russian Investigation Committee and border guards came under artillery fire coming from Ukraine earlier on Friday, Vasily Malayev, the head of the Russian Federal Security Service department for the Rostov region, told Itar-Tass.
The incident took place in the town of Donetsk, Russia’s Rostov region.
“The local residents reported that unexploded shells which had flown from the opposite side of the border into Russia were lying on the ground. Today, a border detachment accompanied the investigators and an OMON demining squad to the shells,” Malayev went on to say.
“Upon arrival to the scene, the group got under fire from the adjacent side. Artillery shells started exploding in the direct vicinity from the group. The border guards were forced to take measures to evacuate all the law enforcers from the fire zone,” the border department chief said.
There were about 10 explosions. He added there were no casualties among the law enforcers. However, a car belonging to the Russian border department was damaged.
Yuri Tarasenko, the mayor of the Russian border town of Donetsk, also reported the fact of shooting from Ukraine’s side on Friday.
