The First Head of the Lugansk People’s Republic, Valery Bolotov, commented on the recent assassination attempt on Igor Plotnitsky on his Facebook page:
He wrote: “I can say the following about the assassination attempt on the current leader of the LPR: This all looks very strange. As a sapper by military specialty, I see that the explosion was, so to say, empty – without any damaged elements. It’s clear in the photo of the car that it had no penetrating fragments in it besides the door dented from the blast. Naturally, the only injuries could have been from shattered glass or internal organs damaged by the blast wave.”
I am not going to judge who needed to do this. But this could become another witch hunt and unite the hands of the LPR’s security structures so as to remove unwanted people and get down to those people who stand for the prosperity and strengthening of he republic,” Bolotov noted.
In any case, such things like attempts on peoples’ lives are unacceptable,” he added.
