Around 200 unidentified armed men took control of several government buildings of the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR), including the Prosecutor General’s Office, in the centre of Lugansk on Wednesday. Head of the LPR’s Military Sector Sergei Rakhno and Acting Prosecutor General Vitaliy Podobry were reportedly apprehended by armed men. Head of the LPR Igor Plotnitsky stated on... Еще Tuesday that there had been an attempted coup but that the LPR government had regained control of the situation. The attempt to overthrow the government was reportedly undertaken after Igor Plotnitsky fired the Minister of Internal Affairs Igor Kornet. In a video message, Kornet insisted that he still retained his position, and demanded that senior figures in the region's leadership be prosecuted.
