Five children aged seven to thirteen have been injured in a hand grenade explosion in a village controlled by the “Luhansk People’s Republic” (“LPR”), eastern Ukraine.
The incident was reported in the occupied village of Krasna Zoria (Ukraine’s government has recently renamed it Chornohorivka) in Luhansk region’s Perevalsky district on Saturday, September 28, according to an “LPR”-controlled news portal.
The children reportedly found a cache of ammunition near residential buildings.
“While playing, the children accidentally blew up one of the grenades that were found, resulting in all five suffering from injuries of varying severity,” the portal said.
The victims were taken to hospitals in occupied Luhansk.
