LPR militiaman killed in attack

LUHANSK. Sept 25 (Interfax) - The Ukrainian Armed Forces attacked an area near the populated area of Donetsky in the self-proclaimed Luhansk People's Republic (LPR) using grenade launchers and firearms, killing one LPR militiaman, the head of the LPR Defense Ministry press service, Yakov Osadchiy, said.

"Before the Ukrainian president's speech at the UN General Assembly, the commanders of the Joint Forces Operation (JFO) increased the intensity of attacks on LPR populated areas, thus trying to discredit the work of [Ukrainian President Volodymyr] Zelensky in the eyes of the global public," Osadchiy said.
