About 10 journalists including a Ruptly stringer came under artillery fire while visiting a shelled maternity hospital in Slavyansk on Saturday.

The journalists were forced to hide in the hospital's basement for about 20 minutes before coming out, but the firing started again once they attempted to leave the building.

Patients were evacuated from the hospital about a week ago.
