The incident took place when the team traveled to the town of Uglegorsk, located about 14 kilometers away from the main battleground of Debaltseve.
Ukrainian snipers prevented the team from moving further, despite the fact that there were Press signs on the camera crewmen's outfits.
There was no immediate word on casualties.
Despite a ceasefire agreement coming into force two days ago, sporadic fighting persists in some areas of eastern Ukraine.
The war in eastern Ukraine has already claimed the lives of four Russian journalists, including correspondent Igor Kornelyuk and video engineer Anton Voloshin of the state-owned broadcaster VGTRK, cameraman Anatoly Klyan from Channel One TV network and photographer Andrei Stenin of the MIA Rossiya Segodnya new agency.
