Video: Commander Basurin and journalists shelled, attacked by Ukrainian troops

Immediately after the OSCE observers had left the shelled school in Sahanka on Monday, a group of journalists and the spokesman of the DPR army, Eduard Basurin, came under fire by Ukrainian troops in the village of Sahanka, which is located in the south of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR). 
"Several bullets have just whistled near, we should leave this area!"
Basurin was in place to give a statement from Sunday's shelling of a local school and several civilian houses.
"We were near a school when heavy machine-gun fire was opened at us. Apart from that, we heard the spurts of automatic gunfire," the Donetsk News Agency quoted him as saying. According to the journalist Ilya Ushenin (NTV), the shelling began as soon as monitors of the OSCE monitoring mission had left the village.
The group of journalists included teams from Russian television channels Rossiya, NTV, Channel One and Fifth Channel, as well as reporters from the local television channels Oplot and Union.
