Artillery Hits Donetsk Morgue — Russian Media

At least five artillery shells hit a morgue in the city of Donetsk in rebel-held eastern Ukraine, Russian media said Sunday.

Both RIA Novosti and LifeNews reported the shelling on Sunday, though neither reported any damage to the dead bodies.

RIA Novosti said nobody was injured, and the damage was limited to several broken windows.

The incident could not be independently verified.

Donetsk is the main stronghold of the embattled pro-Russian insurgency battling the Ukrainian governmental forces.

The government in Kiev recently said that its forces had circled the city entirely, which had a population of 1 million before the war.
