LUHANSK, October 28. /TASS/. The leadership of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People's Republic (LPR) and ordinary citizens have commemorated World War II victims on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of Ukraine's liberation from Nazi occupants celebrated on Tuesday.
Head of the Luhansk People's Council Alexey Karyakin laid flowers to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and a monument to the victims of OUN-UPA (Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists — Ukrainian Insurgent Army) organizations.
"Regrettably, we see now that the plague has returned; nonetheless, we honor the memories of our grandfathers in quite a different way from how people do it in Ukraine," Karyakin said.
"Looking back into the past war, we do not want it to happen again," Karyakin said.
Representatives of trade unions and public organizations attended the commemoration ceremony.
