    Five people were injured by artillery fire in the eastern Ukrainian city of Gorlovka, controlled by the self-proclaimed republic of Donetsk, city’s mayor Andrey Darkovsky said Sunday.

    DONETSK (Sputnik) — A source in the Gorlovka militia added that the artillery fire lasted for 40 minutes and targeted several residential areas.

    "Five people are injured: four men and one woman."

    On Tuesday, local militia also said that Kiev-led troops shelled the city, killing three people.

    Gorlovka has long been the hotspot for clashes between the Kiev forces and the militia in Ukraine’s east.

    More than 6,200 have been killed in eastern Ukraine since an armed conflict erupted there in April 2014, according to the UN.
