MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) sent a patrol on Saturday to the scene of an attempted assassination of Igor Plotnitsky, the head of the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic, the head of the OSCE press service said.

The OSCE sent the patrol in the morning, Alexandra Taylor told RIA Novosti.

According to Taylor, the OSCE is preparing a report on the incident, which will be published in the near future.

The eastern Ukrainian regions of Lugansk and Donetsk do not acknowledge the legitimacy of a government in Kiev that came to power after a February 2014 coup in Ukraine. The new Kiev regime launched a military operation against eastern Ukraine in April 2014 but failed to regain control over the breakaway territories.
