By blowing up an OSCE patrol car in the territory of the self-proclaimed Luhansk republic uncontrolled by Ukraine is a confirmation of Moscow’s attempts to intimidate the observers and destabilize the situation, Ukraine’s foreign ministry said in a statement Apr. 23.
One observer, an American, was killed and 2 seriously wounded. They are in hospital for examination and treatment.
The rebels’ attempt to pin the blame on the Ukrainian army is a blatant manipulation by the separatists and their Russian masters, the statement runs.
