LUGANSK, June 03, /ITAR-TASS/. Monday’s air strike at the downtown part of the city of Lugansk is a military crime, Vladimir Inogorodsky, the chief of the press service of the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic said Monday.
“Monday’s attack is a military crime,” he said. “I was an immediate eyewitness of it and I saw the warplanes make approaches and open fire.”
“Ukrainian mass media are spreading the assertions now that we blew ourselves up on our own,” Inogorodsky said. “They not only pour out slander on us and deceive the international community but they also kill us.”
He recalled that the Air Force had been used without notice against the population of a peaceful city “where children were playing in the streets.”
A Ukrainian Air Force jet delivered a strike at the building of the Lugansk regional administration. The press service of the Lugansk People’s Republic says it dropped cassette bombs, killing a minimum of five people as a result.
All the dead were peaceful Ukrainian citizens, the republic’s government said.
