Situation in Lugansk escalated - gov

Russian shelling of Lugansk Oblast has escalated so much that officials have not been able to assess casualties or damages, according to Head of the Regional Military Civil Administration Serhiy Haidai.

"The situation has extremely escalated," said Haidai, noting, however, that the Russian troops trying to capture an important road in the region have been driven out.

The self-proclaimed Lugansk People's Republic, officially recognized by Russia, extends to approximately half of the entire Lugansk Oblast including the regional capital.
