The government of the Donetsk People’s Republic lent aid to its neighboring Lugansk People’s Republic in preventing a coup attempt by deploying the Sparta battalion to Lugansk. DPR head Alexander Zakharchenko revealed this to Life News.
“It came to deploying the battalion to resolve their problems. The Sparta battalion was indeed on the territory of the Lugansk People’s Republic,” the leader of the DPR said.
Zakharchenko emphasized that everything is stable in the Donetsk People’s Republic and no one is trying to seize power: “Everything here with us is actually peaceful. We regularly hold dialogue with all sectors of society and the neighboring republic,” he added.
On September 20th, the head of the Lugansk People’s Republic, Igor Plotnitsky, stated that a coup d’etat attempt had been foiled. It was remarked that the coup had been organized by the “Kiev regime.”
