“Among those who came under fire in the area of the village of Primiussky in the southern Rostov Region were TV reporters of the Rossiya TV channel,” says a statement posted on the channel’s website. “The reporter, Alexander Chernetsov, said that the shelling came from the Ukrainian territory.”
About 45 Ukrainian shells hit the village damaging six houses and electric wires.
At least 50 local residents were evacuated although no one was injured.The shells came from the combat area in the embattled Donetsk Region where the Ukrainian army is conducting a military operation against local militia. The conflict in eastern Ukraine has turned into a civil war involving tanks, aviation and incendiary bombs.
A team of Russian investigators inspecting the area near Primiussky came under mortar fire from the Ukrainian territory, said Vladimir Markin, the spokesman for the Russian Investigative Committee said.
"During the inspection investigating Wednesday’s shelling from the Ukrainian territory, the investigators who were wearing clothes with insignia and inscriptions came under intensive mortar fire," he said.
Markin added that the attack on the Russian team was targeted but poor training of Ukrainian servicemen and prompt evacuation of the investigators helped to prevent casualties.
