The explosion severely damaged the apartment.

Chief of “people’s militia” of the “LPR” (Luhansk People’s Republic) terrorist organization Yan Leshchenko has been injured in an explosion at a residential building in the city of Luhansk in Russian-occupied Donbas, eastern Ukraine.

That is according to the Ukrainian online newspaper Novyny Donbasa (News of Donbas), referring to a TV channel controlled by the occupying authorities.

The explosion severely damaged the apartment, as the windows were broken, while fragments of glass and things scattered tens of meters around the five-story building.

Telegram channels loyal to the occupying authorities report that Leshchenko resides in that apartment and allegedly controls supplies of cheap alcohol and smuggled cigarettes to so-called “people’s militia units.” They did not rule out a turf war with an attempt to present it as a household blast.

Leshchenko was hospitalized, the media reported, referring to Russia’s news agency Interfax.
