Censor.NET reports citing Plotnitskyi's statement.
"Today, the residents of the city observed a large number of persons in military uniforms in downtown Luhansk who claimed that they were holding drills under the order of the republic's Interior Ministry leadership. This situation developed after yesterday's personnel action taken to lawfully remove Interior Minister from his post. Today's developments have once again proved that we made the right decision. The attempts of certain Interior Ministry agencies to challenge in such a manner the court ruling and the petition of the relevant committee have exceeded all limits," Plotnitsky said.

"I want to assure you that the situation is under the control of the leadership of the Luhansk People's Republic and will be completely resolved soon. These actions committed under the instructions of the illegitimate Interior Ministry leadership are primarily aimed at stirring social discord in the cities and villages of the Luhansk People's Republic. They followed after the personnel action that was taken Nov. 20," the terrorist added.
On Nov. 21, the 'green men' cordoned off the heart of occupied Luhansk in violation of 'LPR' leader Plotnitsky's order to lay down arms.
