LUGANSK, June 29 /ITAR-TASS/. The head of the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic said on Sunday that Kiev was to blame for recent blasts on railway tracks in east Ukraine.
Valery Bolotov said the subversive acts were the result of actions by the Ukrainian authorities.
“The explosions on railway tracks are their provocations,” Bolotov told a press conference, adding that the Lugansk People’s Republic had no relation to the blasts.
A railway section was exploded on Saturday night in the Chuguyev district in the east Ukrainian Kharkov region shortly before a passenger train heading from the southern Russian city of Adler to Kiev was about to pass the area. The incident was the latest in a string of explosions that have hit the Ukrainian railways lately.
On the night of June 23-24, unidentified persons exploded a railway bridge in the Zaporozhye Region in southeast Ukraine. The blast damaged a bridge support, the metal framework and wooden posts of a bridge section.
On June 22, a blast on the railway track in the Donetsk Region derailed 14 railway cars of a cargo train belonging to the Russian rail company RZD.
