KIEV, February 18. /TASS/. A gas pipeline was damaged in night shelling of the settlement of Kominternovo in the south of Donbass , the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Novoazovsky district head Oleg Morgun said on Thursday.
"Shots were fired near Kominternovo at night from the side of Mariupol. No one was injured, nothing was damaged apart from a gas pipe," Donetsk News Agency quoted Morgun as saying.
