DONETSK, October 8. /TASS/. At least nine people have been injured in the shelling of a shopping mall in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk, Prime Minister of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic Alexander Zakharchenko said.
He said there were children among the injured people. TASS reports from the site that the shelling continues, and gunfire can be heard even in central Donetsk.
The parties to the Ukrainian conflict agreed on a ceasefire and exchange of captives during the OSCE-mediated talks in Minsk on September 5 that came two days after Russian President Vladimir Putin proposed his seven-point plan to settle the situation in the east of Ukraine. The long hoped-for ceasefire took effect the same day. Fragile truce holds, but has been violated several times.
