Unknown people carried out blowing up of the bridge in occupied Luhansk. This was stated by the so-called "Minister" of the internal affairs of the "LNR" Igor Kornet, - separatist media reported. "The terrorist act was carried out by blowing up three bridge pillars. Concrete structures were partially destroyed, but the reinforcement withstood the explosion", - Kornet stated. He specified that the explosion was carried out at the intersection of Lutuhynska and 2nd Budivelna streets. The separatists assert that the "humanitarian convoy" from Russia was supposedly to proceed along this bridge. Meanwhile, a convoy of white KAMAZ trucks with an unknown cargo arrived safely in occupied Luhansk.
Horlivka militant Igor Bezler ("Bes") called the demolition of a bridge in occupied Luhansk "a successful operation" by Ukrainian intelligence services and criticized the "LNR" security forces. He wrote this on his page in social network. "I want to ask what kind of a terrorist attack? There is usual sabotage work by the Special Operations Forces in the JFO zone", - Bezler admitted. "During the existence of two banana republics ("DNR" and "LNR" - OstroV), it was quite possible to create a single "Anti-sabotage anti-terrorist center". But obviously, no one needs it. So the bridges will explode", - Bezler considers. "So we RTFM and do not look like idiots…", - the militant noted.

Moreover, there are all the documents that I am not living here! The debt totaled as much as $200!", - one of the recipients of such a warning about debt wrote.

Commentators under the post also expressed their indignation at such a situation (spelling and punctuation of the authors are preserved): "No one cares, flags change, freaks remain", "I feel that as soon as the troops are disengaged, the people will come out with the Ukrainian flags, not with great love for it, but from hatred of the DNR", "This power has completely lost its mind! It is disgusting even to look at this abomination (".
