Donetsk, Feb 22 - DAN. A group of journalists from the Donetsk People’s Republic, the United States, Italy and Russia have come under fire outside the town of Gorlovka, photojournalist Alexander Gayuk told the Donetsk News Agency.

“It happened not far from the car blasted in the morning,” Gayuk said. “They fired a recoilless gun at us; we hid in old trenches; they were flooded but then we’re alive.

“We’re now on our way back together. All is well,” he added.

Gayuk companions were U.S. journalist Patrick Lancaster, Italian journalist Vittorio Rangeloni and Russian journalist Nadezhda Chicherova. *jk
