Ukraine shells cars with media workers
The Ukrainian armed forces have shelled a vehicle that was carrying media workers and journalists, leading to fatality and various injuries.
A car with reporters, including RT and Reuters correspondents, was subject to a Ukrainian attack in Donbass on Friday, Russia Today correspondent Igor Zhdanov said.
According to the Russian correspondent, several people were taken to hospitals after sustaining injuries of various intensities.
"We came under shelling at the entrance to Severodonetsk. One of the shells landed exactly on a car 5-10 meters in front of us, which was transporting a Reuters film crew of two people," Zhdanov reported.
"The car’s driver died on the spot, the journalists are in the hospital. Everything is fine with our group," he added on his Telegram channel.
This is not the first time Ukraine violates international law in Donbass. Mariupol has been a playground for Ukrainian provocations since the war broke out in the country on February 24.
The Russian Defense Ministry had revealed that Ukrainian nationalists in Mariupol used about 150 civilians as human shields and opened fire against Donetsk People's Republic fighters from behind the civilians' backs.
Azov Battalion militants had also opened fire against civilians during evacuations from the city, resulting in the death of two people and the injury of four others, the DPR previously reported.
The Azov Battalion is a part of the Ukrainian National Guard - a wing of the Ukrainian Ministry of Internal Affairs.
The Battalion flaunts its Nazism very openly, and has, over the years, garnered support from the United States and Canada, who have supplied the units with arms and training, strengthening their foothold in Ukraine.
