It remains unclear how the 10 people were killed, but local media reporters have told the BBC that it is likely that the victims were fired upon by Russian artillery positioned outside the city.
Meanwhile, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin has said the West will not succeed in what he called its attempt to achieve global dominance and dismember Russia, Reuters reports.
Putin has been speaking in a televised government meeting this morning, saying that if the West thinks Russia will step back then it does not understand Russia.
He also spoke about the sanctions designed to hit Russia’s economy – but said the central bank does not need to print money and the country has enough financial resources.
“Our economy and business have all necessary resources to meet all the goals set, challenges should only mobilise us,” he said.
