    The Russian Investigative Committee launched the criminal case into the shelling of civilians in the eastern Ukrainian region of Donbass that took place on March 3-10 and resulted in the destruction of more than 50 buildings, the committee’s spokeswoman, Svetlana Petrenko, said Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The shelling in March resulted in the destruction of 50 buildings in the cities of Donetsk, Horlivka and in the other populated areas.

    "Due to the shelling of the civilian population in Donbass, which occurred on March 3 to 10, another criminal case was launched," Petrenko said.

    Kiev launched a special military operation in Ukraine’s southeast in April 2014, after local residents refused to recognize the new Ukrainian authorities, which came to power as a result of what was recognized by many people as a coup.
