DONETSK, October 20. /TASS/. Ukrainian security forces delivered strikes on downtown Donetsk with the use of Tochka-U tactical missiles, first vice-premier of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic Andrey Purgin told TASS on Monday.
“The Ukrainian Armed Forces delivered strikes by using the Tochka-U missile. It fell in the Voroshilov district, near Panfilov Avenue and Rosa Luxemburg Avenue. At present, emergency services have left for the site. According to preliminary data, the explosion occurred near the building of an oncology hospital,” he said.
Purgin said at that moment he was holding a meeting with electors of the “Donetsk Republic” movement.
The blast smashed out the windows in the hall where Purgin was meeting with the electors. Four people were injured. The explosion “provoked panic. Now the situation has normalized”, he said.
Government employees have been evacuated to bomb shelters due to continuous heavy artillery strikes, the DPR government’s press service said.
One of the officials said they had been in the bomb shelter for about an hour. At present, they are starting to return to their working places.
The government building is located in downtown Donetsk. No serious damage has been caused to the building, the press service said.
