MOSCOW (Reuters) - The presence of armed men in the streets of the capital of Ukraine’s breakaway Luhansk region is an attempted coup by a fired local police chief, Igor Plotnitsky, the head of the self-styled “Luhansk People’s Republic” (LNR), said on Wednesday.

Plotnitsky sacked Igor Kornet, the local interior minister, on Monday.

“How else can you call the situation when the person fired by court from his job is attempting to conduct some operations by force? This an attempt to seize power,” Plotnitsky’s website quoted him as saying during a meeting with reporters.

I'm just a little sketchy on who was revolting from who. Is Plotnitsky pro-Moscow or pro-Kiev?

I dunno. It was a real short article. I'll poke around the interwebs.

ETA: zero. Maybe Reuters got it wrong. No other outlets are picking up on this.

I cant find out either. I believe the coup leader was pro Russia and was one of the reasons he was terminated but that's from reading a couple articles nothing I've seen states this though..... so take it with a grain of salt. Also anyone who's who calls themselves "peoples republic" very rarely are.....


And hot damn MP! You are Jonny on the spot with the news! When ever I finish reading articles I come here and you've already posted! haahaha

This last one says that the leader (I'm assuming of the forces) is Kremlin backed.
