It is not known yet whether the LPR leader was in the car when it exploded.

Following the car explosion, two people with injuries were taken to hospital, according to the militants.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Russian presidential envoy Vladislav Surkov expressed his belief that leader of the DPR [Donetsk People's Republic] Alexander Zakharchenko, along with the LPR’s Plotnitsky, would "continue work at their posts" until the end of their terms in office in 2018.
