There was a camera outside, but a few minutes after the Russians broke through a man climbed up and turned off the camera.

Reuters is reporting there were shots fired and one Ukrainian soldier was injured during the capture.

Alexander Marquardt from ABC News said the Russia forces are taking every single memory card from the media in the area.

Breitbart News will update when more information is available.
