06.02.2017, 14:51

Wounded by gunfire in Avdiivka (Donetsk region) British photographer Christopher Nunn told the details of the event. He wrote on Twitter, reports Espreso.TV.

According to him, he came to the city in order to bring aid. "On Thursday, Fabruary 2, I entered Avdiivka with my friend and driver Vova. We delivered some medical aid to the hospital and then spent most of the day walking around the town, speaking with residents." - Nunn wrote.

In the evening of the same day, with a friend they decide to "visit Elena, a good friend of a friend, to see how she was living in the current situation. We had some food and tea, and sat around her kitchen table."

"As the evening progressed the artillery fire beccame more frequent and seemingly closer, but nothing unusual according to Elena, who had lived through the entire war in Avdiivka. Suddenly a rocket landed next to the kitchen window. I was in the bedroom and the blast sent glass and debris into my face, some of it going into my left eye. Vova was in a hallway and was uninjured.' - photo correspondent told.

He said that, " Unfortunately, Elena was in the kitchen when the rocket hit and died from her injuries."

"We were sat in the kitchen a few moments before, and if we would all have still been there we would all have died." - Nunn stresses.

Later, Christopher thanked for "well wishes", "I'm recovering, but please, this isn't about me, it's about the 1000's who have died and suffer in this stupid war," - the journalist added.
