Pasicznik reported that three people were killed and eight were injured. According to him, the attack was carried out using American ATACMS missiles. However, he did not provide any evidence for this.

The Ukrainian side has not commented on this matter so far. Reuters reminds that a fuel warehouse in Luhansk was attacked on Wednesday. Five people were injured then.

Russian troops control most but not all of Luhansk Oblast, one of four that Russia annexed after launching a full-scale invasion of Ukraine in 2022.
