On the morning of January 28, a news item was published on the website under the headline "Ukrainians attacked the Luhansk Republic?"
The news item quoted the words of an "officer of the press service of the Luhansk People's Republic Oleksander Mazeikin" saying that a serviceman of the People's Militia of the Luhansk People's Republic " perished by the artillery shell of the Ukrainian army."
He said that inbound the village of Veselogorovka a fire was opened with artillery and large-caliber machine guns from the operating site of the 30th Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Troitske.
