Ten people were killed and nine wounded when pro-Russian militants shelled a school and a minibus in Donetsk.
The UNIAN news agency reported at 12:39 Kyiv time pro-Kyiv Donetsk regional state administration that the self-proclaimed Donetsk people’s republic terrorist organization (DNR) fired a multiple-launch rocket system at School No 57 on Yasnopolyanska Street, 5 in the Kyivskyi district of Donetsk.
The shell exploded five metres away from the building. Up to 240 people were present at that moment, including 70 children and 28 teachers. Four people were killed, eight were wounded, seven of them were hospitalized. No children were hurt. The windows on the first and second floors were damaged by shrapnel.
Apart from that, at approximately 10:00 “DNR” militants shelled a bus of the #17 route. As a result, 6 people died and one was wounded. It is clear from the landing of the shell that it came not from the direction of the airport under control of Ukrainian forces, but from the center of the city, which was used in previous days by “DNR” militants for setting up shelling positions.
