LUHANSK, January 28. /TASS/. At least 16 people were killed and another 114 were wounded over the past 24 hours as Kiev troops shelled the towns of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR), the LPR health minister said on Wednesday.
Larisa Ayrapetyan said 13 civilians were killed in Stakhanov, two people died in Krasny Luch and one person in Luhansk.
"These are mainly shrapnel wounds, which are very serious. We have no time to take people to hospitals," Ayrapetyan said. In Stakhanov, some 50 kilometers west of Luhansk, "there are a lot of injured children," she said.
A total of 76 victims have been taken to medical facilities in Luhansk, she said.
