"Over the last day, we have lost one Ukrainian soldier, and another five were injured as a result of military clashes. The greatest losses were in the village of Shyrokyne," Lysenko said.

As UNIAN reported earlier, on May 23, one of the leaders of the Luhansk People's Republic militant organization, Aleksey Mozgovoy, was reported to have been assassinated.

According to some theories, the militant leader was killed as a result of “internal warfare" among the militants. Another theory was that he was killed by Russian security forces.
