MOSCOW, February 6. /TASS/. The RT camera crew that came under sniper fire earlier on Friday in south-east Ukraine’s Uglegorsk has set off for Donetsk, RT press service told TASS on Friday.
RT journalists left Uglegorsk with the humanitarian convoy that helped evacuate civilians to Donetsk, the press service added.
The RT crew came under sniper fire while reporting on the evacuation of civilians through the checkpoint between Uglegorsk and Debaltsevo. The two sides of the Ukrainian conflict have earlier reached an agreement on temporary ceasefire that will allow civilians to leave the town. However, despite the agreements, the convoy came under fire.
"Bullets were flying in two-three meters from us. It happened near the checkpoint on the road out of Uglegorsk. The convoy stopped, and a sniper opened fire. We lay on the ground," RT correspondent Roman Kosarev said. "It was probably a Ukrainian sniper," RT Arabic journalist Anna Knishenko said.
Apart from Roman Kosarev and Anna Knishenko, the camera crew includes operator Sergey Grushin and assistant Nikolay Bocharov.
RT journalists have repeatedly come under fire while covering the conflict in Ukraine last year. In May, operator Fyodor Zavaleykov was wounded in the shelling in Mariupol. RT journalists also came under fire near Kramatrosk in May. In October, RT Arabic camera crew came under shelling in the Luhansk Region.
