Ukraine crisis: Mother films shelling nearing apartment

Fighting has surged in eastern Ukraine as government forces and pro-Russian rebels try to make gains ahead of possible peace talks on Wednesday.

Separatist forces have carried out rocket attacks on the government-held town of Kramatorsk, striking both the key military headquarters and a residential area.

This footage was captured by a mother as shelling neared her apartment block in the town on Tuesday.

Some may find this footage distressing.
