Published on Russia Today RT, June 7, 2015.

Artillery shells have hit a local market in the north-western district of Donetsk, a city in eastern Ukraine. At least one person has been wounded, according to the head of the district’s administration aligned with Donbass rebels.  

RT’s Ilya Petrenko was on the scene at the spot which came under attack. He reports the local market was still burning after taking a direct hit, with self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic’s emergency personnel trying to extinguish it. Two residential homes were also devastated … //

… Saturday’s shellings come following a recent escalation in violence in eastern Ukraine, and a subsequent United Nations Security Council meeting on Friday.

At the meeting, Russian envoy Vitaly Churkin said even the Ukrainian authorities’ supporters in the West are frustrated with Kiev’s “flagrant violation and blunt ignorance of the Minsk agreements.”

He also called on international monitors from the OSCE’s Special Monitoring Mission in Ukraine to report on the details of the recent upsurge in violence, “to precisely report on the targets of the shelling and its victims – civilians or military divisions carrying out artillery attacks on residential areas.”
