Lugansk is the capital of self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic. As the civil war was raging in the Ukraine’s east, the city had never seen real combat until recently. The relative calm became a thing of the past on June 2 as the self-defense formations of Lugansk People’s Republic tried to hold negotiations with border guards detachment located near-by. The soldiers were told to give in arms and go home or switch sides.
