Ukraine has strongly denied two previous reports that its shells fell on Russian territory near the border, describing them as fake news.
Kiev said Ukrainian government forces were not firing and had no interest in escalating the already high tension.
On the other hand, a number of mortar shells landed inside Ukrainian territory, Saturday, according to “AFP”.
The shells landed hundreds of meters from the whereabouts of Ukraine’s Interior Minister Denis Monastirsky, where he met journalists during a tour of the battle front against Russia-backed rebels.
The minister was forced to hide when the shells exploded, shortly after he gave statements to international media, according to AFP correspondents, while no casualties were recorded.
