    The Russian border control has registered about 15 munition explosions, which came from the Ukrainian side, a spokesman for the Rostov Region’s Federal Security Service told RIA Novosti on Sunday.

    ROSTOV-ON-DON, August 10 (RIA Novosti) — The Russian border control has registered about 15 munition explosions, which came from the Ukrainian side, a spokesman for the Rostov Region’s Federal Security Service told RIA Novosti on Sunday.

    «This time, the munitions flew 500 meters [1,640 feet] beyond the border and blew up just 300 meters [984 feet] away from a town," Vasily Malayev said, adding that the explosions took place near the Cossack village of Mityakinskaya.

    Malayev said there were no injuries among the border guards or local residents.

    The Russian-Ukrainian border has been hit multiple times by Ukrainian artillery in the nearly four-months-long standoff between Ukraine's national troops and independence supporters, refusing to recognize the legitimacy of the new government in the country's southeast.

    Russia’s Rostov Region borders Ukraine’s eastern regions. One person has been killed and nine injured on the Russian territory as a result of Ukrainian shelling since the military operation in southeastern Ukraine began, the regional government reported on July 30.

    A week ago, a mine round launched from Ukraine’s territory exploded near Gukovo checkpoint. Last month, shells exploded in the Russian city of Donetsk in Rostov Region, killing one civilian and injuring two.

    Moscow condemned the attacks, saying that such provocations may have irreversible consequences.
