MOSCOW, March 18. /TASS/. Emergencies Ministry rescuers of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) have come under mass fire from the Ukrainian army during the humanitarian operation to search for the bodies of Ukrainian law enforcers at the airport of Donetsk, the DPR Defense Ministry told a local news agency on Wednesday.
"At the airport, Donetsk rescue officers came under heavy shelling from the Ukrainian army positions," a DPR defense spokesman said. "Everyone had to remain in shelter for two hours. During a brief lull the rescuers managed to leave the airport area."
The work to search for the bodies of Ukrainian servicemen has been suspended on Wednesday. The operation is expected to be resumed on Thursday, if "there’s no threat to the lives of the rescuers," the Defense Ministry said.
