LUGANSK, June 29, /ITAR-TASS/. Hundreds of people gathers on Sunday in the centre of Ukraine’s southeastern city of Lugansk for an anti-war rally and demanded the Kiev authorities stop combat operations against their own people.
The rally was addressed by head of the newly proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic Valery Bolotov, speaker of parliament of the Union of People’s Republics [of Donetsk and Lugansk] Olge Tsarev, local administration officials and lawmakers.
The Lugansk and Donetsk People’s Republics “have become a thorn in the flesh for international imperialism and their henchmen in Kiev,” Bolotov said. “Today, we are holding the front, but tomorrow we will throw the invaders out.”
