Russian State Journalist Deported for "Anti-Ukrainian Activity"

The pro-separatist Donetsk News Agency (DAN) reports that the deputy commander of the armed forces of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic (DNR), Eduard Basurin, has announced that seven homes have been destroyed by shelling over the last 24 hours in the village of Sakhanka, 24 kilometres north-west of Mariupol.

The head of the administration in the separatist-held village, Aleksandr Pelipas, said that the shelling had cut lines of communication to the village and severed gas mains.

Last night Pelipas claimed that over one hundred Ukrainian shells had fallen on the village over the course of four hours, wounding one resident.

Mariupol news site 0629.com.ua reports that Yaroslav Chepurnoy, a Ukrainian military press officer, had confirmed that the shelling did indeed take place, but blamed the attack on Russian-backed forces.

Chepurnoy claimed that the shelling was conducted from separatist-held Oktyabr and was a provocation by Russian-backed forces.

0629 reported that OSCE representatives had said that the sound of blasts had been noted, correlating with the reports of the shelling. Experts will visit the site to investigate the attack.

DAN sent a photographer to the village and published images of the aftermath:
