Russian news outlets have reported that two explosions rocked the occupied city of Luhansk in eastern Ukraine; a column of smoke was seen rising over the city.

Witnesses say the missile hit a Russian military facility that maintained the equipment and carried oil products.

There was a missile attack on an oil storage facility.

By the way, Turchak and Pasichnyk (Russia-backed "mayor" of Luhansk) are in the city, the report says.

One of the targets was the "Polypak" plant ("Engineering Plant 100"), where Russian servicemen were quartered. Another missile fell on the oil storage.

The video showing smoke rising hundreds of meters into the sky has been shared across Russian social media.

So far, no casualties have been reported.

У Луганську вибухи

Today, the "Luhansk People's Republic" is celebrating the so-called "Republic Day". At the time of the explosion, Russians and collaborators laid flowers at the monument to the Russian troops who captured Donbas.

The capital of the "LPR" is out of range for the fire of HIMARS missile systems, therefore, most likely, there was a strike by ballistic or cruise missiles, the media added.
