    Head of the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic Igor Plotnitsky accused the Ukrainian government on Saturday of the failed attack against him.

    LUHANSK (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, a bomb exploded on a road near Plotnitsky's car. He sustained non-life threatening injuries.

    "I am alive and well, and any attempts to speculate on my health are intrigues by accomplices of the Ukrainian party. As you know, the war has not yet ended, and US special services and those who try to shake the situation in Ukraine and in the whole world, are of course behind the Ukrainian government," Plotnitsky said in a recorded address to the republic's residents.
