“Today at about 11 a.m. there
was an assassination attempt on Valery Bolotov. He is wounded but there is no
risk for his life or health,” said Vasily Nikitin, a spokesman of Luhansk
separatists, adding that Bolotov lost a lot of blood but is recovering in a private
clinic.

Nikitin said that Bolotov was
shot in his car on his way to negotiations over the future of Luhansk Oblast.

Bolotov was one of the leaders
of armed men who on April 6 captured the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) headquarters in Luhansk and later captured the regional administration building and
other government offices in the city.
