UKRAINE-RUSSIA-CRISIS

January 18, 2015

By Eliot Higgins

This handout picture taken and released on January 13, 2015 by Anti-Terrorist Operation (ATO) press service shows snow covered with blood and a damaged bus after it was hit by a long-range Grad rocket apparently fired by pro-Russian insurgents in Volnovakha. Ten Ukrainian civilians were killed and nearly 20 injured in the attack. Local police said the rocket appeared to have gone astray after being aimed by the gunmen at a checkpoint set up by government soldiers on the main highway connecting the rebel stronghold of Donetsk with Ukraine’s southeastern coast on the Sea of Azov.
