LUHANSK, June 2. /ITAR-TASS/. One person was killed and ten wounded in a bomb attack by the Ukrainian Air Force on the building of the regional administration in the east Ukrainian city of Luhansk, the press office of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic said on Monday.
“As of now, it is known that one was killed and at least ten were wounded,” the press office said. Cluster bombs were used in today’s air raid by the Ukrainian Air Force on the Luhansk Region state administration, the press office added.
A Ukrainian Air Force fighter has made a raid on the Luhansk Region state administration, a militia spokesman said.
“A Ukrainian Air Force fighter has made a missile and bombing raid on the building of the regional administration; the facade to the left of the front entrance has been destroyed,” the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic's press service said. Self-defense militia told ITAR-TASS civilians could be among the wounded.
Militia storm east Ukraine’s Luhansk border unit
Earlier on Monday, negotiations between people’s police of the Luhansk region and the command of a Ukrainian border post located in the territory of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR) came to a deadlock after a 30 minute truce, a spokesman for the LPR told ITAR-TASS on Monday.
“Around 100 armed people went at around 12.30 am local time to a Luhansk border unit and have taken positions along the parameter of the border unit territory. The first attack with use of assault rifles and under-barrel grenade launchers started at around 4.00 am local time and lasted for about 40 minutes. After making a maneuvre, assailants launched another again. Several border guards were wounded. The total number of attackers makes more than 200 people. A fighter jet was dispatched to help border guards,” the border service said.
South-east Ukraine’s army was clashing with Right Sector radicals and the National Guard at the main base of Luhansk border unit located in the southern part of the south-eastern Ukrainian city of Luhansk in the residential area Mirny, the chief press officer of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic told ITAR-TASS earlier in the day.
The chief press officer denied earlier media reports that the southern part of the city was being shelled. “No one is shelling the city. The stand-off is going on at the main base of the border unit,” he noted.
Luhansk border unit protects the state border section with Russia, stretching at 746 kilometres within 10 controlled border districts. Twelve branches of Ukrainian State Border Service are included in the Luhansk border unit.
