DONETSK, November 25. /TASS/. At least two people have been killed and six more injured on Tuesday when a shell hit a passenger bus in the Oktyabrsky district of Donetsk in east Ukraine, the Interior Ministry of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) reported.
“The incident happened not far from the Aurora cinema theater. A shell hit the bus No. 6,” the ministry said. “Two people died and six more were injured as a result."
On November 23, two gas pipelines have been set on fire by the Ukrainian military shelling of two districts of Ukraine’s eastern city of Donetsk, the capital of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), the Donetskgorgaz (Donetsk City Gas) gas distribution company reported on Monday. More than 5,000 city dwellers have been left without gas supply as a result of the artillery attack.
“Massive artillery shelling on November 23 has damaged the local gas distribution networks in many places, destroyed several houses and city infrastructure facilities. High and medium pressure pipelines are on fire in two districts of the city,” the company said.
Seven repair teams have been engaged in the restoration efforts.
