Two weeks ago Jerome Sessini returned to Ukraine to cover the continuing crisis.
On June 12th, two buildings were hit by Grad missiles launched by Ukrainian forces in Maryanka, a working class suburb south of Donetsk center. At least one woman was killed during the attack while she was in her kitchen. Petrovsky, another suburb of Donetsk, has also been seriously damaged. Civilians were fleeing the area. Separatists took some of them to a safe area by bus and provided some with shelter at a base while others have been housed at a Hospital 24 in Donestk. At least 10 civilians were killed.
