MOSCOW, February 10. /TASS/. A bus carrying civilians hit a landmine at a Ukrainian checkpoint near the contact line between Ukraine and the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic early on Wednesday, a source in the DPR law enforcement agencies has said.
"At around 9.00 a.m. a bus with civilian persons struck a landmine at a roadblock from the Ukrainian side at the Novomikhailovka checkpoint. According to the preliminary data, three people have been killed," the source told the Donetsk news agency.
The Donetsk republic’s defense ministry has repeatedly said that Ukraine’s forces had "totally" mined their own positions and checkpoints. Several dozen civilians of Donbass hit mines over the past year, according to official data provided by Ukraine’s Inferior Ministry.
