KIEV, March 20 /TASS/. Kiev government forces have claimed responsibility for intentionally exploding a river bridge on the disengagement line with the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR) near the town of Stanitsa Luhanskaya on March 19, Ukraine’s interior ministry official said on Thursday.

The Kiev forces destroyed an automobile bridge across the Seversky Donets River on Thursday evening, the LPR authorities reported on March 19.

The bridge was one of the two remaining corridors that used to connect the LPR to Ukraine.

Ilya Kiva, the deputy head of Ukraine’s Interior Ministry department for the Donetsk region, said in an interview aired by Ukraine’s 5 Channel TV on Friday that the bridge had been blown up to prevent an allegedly possible offensive by the LPR militias.

"The anti-terror operation’s headquarters decided to explode the bridge to prevent terrorist forces from breaking through to our positions," Kiva stressed.

LPR’s head Igor Plotnitsky said earlier on Friday that the self-proclaimed republic would not give in to Kiev’s provocations in connection with the bridge explosion near Stanitsa Luhanskaya.
