MOSCOW, July 30. /TASS/. Journalists from Russia’s REN TV channel have come under fire last night in Gorlovka, Donetsk News Agency reported on Thursday.
"Yesterday at around 10-11pm our crew arrived in Gorlovka together with representative of self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic [DPR] emergencies ministry to film a report about aftermath of shellings. While we were filming in the Glubokoye settlement, shelling resumed, and we barely managed to hide in a school building," Donetsk News Agency quoted REN TV correspondent Stanislav Bernvald as saying.
Bernvald also said that there were civilians in the school building as well at the time of the shelling.
"DPR emergency ministry’s rescuers said that [Ukrainian forces] most likely fired from mortars of 120mm caliber. Apart from that, we also heard tank weapons. It became clear later that the crew became witnesses to a death of a woman who was killed in the shelling," the journalist said.
Overnight to July 30, two civilians were killed in shellings in Gorlovka. Six more people, including two children, were injured.
According to the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) defense ministry, Gorlovka is regularly shelled by the Ukrainian forces.
Ceasefire is envisaged by the Minsk agreements on Ukraine. The Minsk accords were signed on February 12, after negotiations in the so-called "Normandy format" in the Belarusian capital Minsk, bringing together Russian President Vladimir Putin, French President Francois Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.
The Minsk accords also envisage weaponry withdrawal, prisoner exchange, local elections in Donbas, constitutional reform in Ukraine and establishing working sub-groups on security, political, economy and humanitarian components of the Minsk accords.
The Ukrainian forces and the self-defense forces of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk republics have repeatedly accused each other of violating ceasefire and other points of the Minsk agreements.
