On June 7, explosions were heard in Russian-occupied Luhansk. A fire broke out at the site of the hit, the epicenter of which was at a local oil depot, according to the Atesh Telegram channel and social media.

According to Atesh, local agents report a “good hit” on an oil depot and a large fire in the area of the Hostra Mohyla (a memorial in Luhansk - ed.).

Not the first time

Luhansk is the regional center of the Luhansk region, which was occupied by Russia in 2014. Since then, the Ukrainian defense forces have been constantly striking at the places where the enemy's equipment and manpower are concentrated.

A series of explosions were recorded near the village of Yuvileine on May 20. It was reported that the Russian academy of internal affairs was hit.

Explosions were also heard in Luhansk in early May. The Russians claimed a hit at a local oil depot. After that, Luhansk experienced fuel shortages.

In October 2023, there was a hit at the airfield in Luhansk.
