MOSCOW, February 13. /TASS/. A cardboard production plant has caught fire as a result of shelling by Ukrainian forces in Donetsk, the emergencies ministry of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) said on Friday.
"The ‘Cartol’ plant was hit in the Kuybyshevsky district. [The shell] hit the room where paper is stored. As a result, [the plant] caught fire," the Donetsk News Agency quoted a representative of the DPR emergencies ministry as saying. "Our team has already set off to out fire," he added.
Seven people, including three children, died over the last 24 hours as a result of shelling, DPR defense ministry spokesman Eduard Basurin told a briefing earlier on Friday.
"Yesterday, three children died as a result of shelling of a residential house in Gorlovka - a boy, aged 1, and two girls, aged 6 and 12," the Donetsk News Agency quoted Basurin as saying. "In total, 7 civilians were killed and 15 more injured."
The Ukrainian forces shelled several settlements in DPR over 40 times in the last 24 hours, Basurin said. "Over the last 24 hours, [we] registered 42 shellings, including 19 in Donetsk, four in Golovka and one in Yasinovataya," he added.
