DONETSK, October 25 (RIA Novosti) - The centenarian from Donetsk died after being severely wounded by shell fragments, Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) Interior Ministry's press-service told RIA Novosti Saturday.
"A female born in 1914 was injured on the Putilovskaya street at her home and died on the spot," the ministry told.
In mid-April, Kiev launched a military operation against independence supporters in Ukraine’s eastern Luhansk and Donetsk regions. Some 3,700 people have been killed and over 9,000 have sustained injuries since the beginning of the armed conflict, according to the latest UN estimates.
Both sides have subsequently accused each other of violating the truce.
