LUHANSK, January 21. /TASS/. Six people have died in the city of Stakhanov in the Luhansk region, eastern Ukraine, head of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic Igor Plotnitsky said on Wednesday.
Ukrainian troops “continue the bombardment of the cities. Today Stakhanov was attacked. Six dead people have been pulled out of the debris. Even kindergartens came under fire. Fortunately, nobody was there,” Plotnitsky said.
An attempt has been made to blast a bridge near Stanitsa Luganskaya, he added.
In recent days Ukrainian security forces have stepped up hostilities in the zone of military operation, Plotnitsky said.
“The offensive continues. The village of Peski has been seized. They are trying to return the lost positions by exploding graves. [Ukrainian President Petro] Poroshenko declared war on his own people,” he said.
Earlier, the Luhansk Information Center news agency reported on several dozens of wounded people.
