Pro-Russian authorities in Donetsk report six killed in Ukrainian attack on marketplace

The authorities of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic have denounced Thursday the death of six people in an attack allegedly executed by the Ukrainian Army against a market in the city of Donetsk, without Kiev having pronounced itself for now on these accusations.

“According to the information received, six people have been killed and six wounded in an artillery attack on the Covered Market,” Donetsk Mayor Alexei Kulemzin has said on his Telegram account, hours after pro-Russian authorities in Zaporiyia and Ukraine exchanged accusations following a bomb explosion at a market in the city of Melitopol.
