DONETSK, February 4. /TASS/. Ukrainian military forces fired a shell hitting the 27th hospital in Tekstilshchik residential district in war-torn east Ukrainian city of Donetsk and leaving several people dead and wounded, the press service of city authorities reported.
A power line was also damaged, the whole residential area was left without power supply.
The number of those killed and wounded is not specified.
Unrecognized Donetsk republic defense ministry spokesman previously said that Kiev had rejected a ceasefire initiative offering unacceptable conditions.
After the Donetsk republic on February 2 asked to introduce a "silence regime" near the city of Uglegorsk to evacuate civilians, Kiev replied with a proposal to expand the ceasefire to four other cities. The proposal raised fears that the Ukrainian side could use the silence regime for taking the surrounded Ukrainian army and National Guard units from the encirclement rather than for evacuating civilians.
