MOSCOW, September 05 /ITAR-TASS/. Russian REN TV journalists came under fire in the embattled city of Donetsk, eastern Ukraine, their channel said on Thursday.
It said the Ukrainian army had shelled the city again ahead of the Contact Group meeting on Ukraine to be held in Minsk, Belarus, on Friday.
“Several days ago, reports in social networks said that the REN TV crew had come under mortar fire near Lugansk [another major city in the south-east of Ukraine]. It was stove-piped information at that time. But today our correspondent could personally see that despite attempts to make a truce, the [Ukrainian] army is not going to cease fire,” the channel said.
