"While heading for Shirokino [near the city of Mariupol] along with the OSCE monitors to assess the implementation of the ceasefire, our convoy came under fire by Kiev-led forces. A group of Russian journalists also came under fire," DPR Defense Ministry was quoted as saying by the Donetsk news agency.
No deaths or injuries have been reported as a result of the incident.
DPR Head Alexander Zakharchenko confirmed earlier in the day that Russian Armed Forces representative at the Joint Center for Coordination and Control (JCCC) Colonel-General Alexander Lentsov also came under fire in Donbas.
The most recent ceasefire in Donbas became effective on February 15, after Kiev forces and representatives of the self-proclaimed republics of Donetsk and Luhansk agreed on a number of measures to deescalate the military conflict lasting since April 2014.
