"The Luhansk showdown is well underway. Armed people stormed and captured the 'Prosecutor General's Office of the Luhansk People's Republic.' 'Prosecutor General' Podobry, Plotnitsky's associate, is in custody. As for Plotnitsky, his fate is still unknown. A video allegedly showing him meeting with the 'ministers' in Luhansk was posted this morning. Other sources say Plotnitsky fled to Russia," the blogger said.
The video showing heavily armed individuals outside the building of the 'LPR Prosecutor General's Office' later surfaced on the Internet.
The Russian Novaya Gazeta news outlet also later reported that members of the self-styled republic's 'Interior Ministry' arrested all the 'Prosecutor General's Office' employees. A total of 20 members of the agency were arrested including 'Prosecutor General' Vitaly Podobry, 'Military Prosecutor' Sergei Rakhno and their 'deputies.' The detainees were taken to the building of the 'people's council.' The building is now heavily guarded and is being used by the 'Interior Ministry.'
Other sources said the 'LPR Prosecutor General's Office' was stormed by the combined task force of the 'LPR Interior Ministry' and the Russian mercenaries from the 'Donetsk People's Republic'-based ('DPR') Vityaz detachment.
The 'prosecutors' were arrested after sacked 'interior minister' Igor Kornet, who challenged his dismissal, offered 'LPR' terrorists' leader Plotnitsky to hand over the 'prosecutor general,' the 'military prosecutor general,' and their 'deputies' as well as 'LPR secretariat head' Irina Teitsman, 'LPR security service' chief Yevgeny Seliverstov and head of the 'LPR State Broadcasting Company' Anastasia Shurkaeva. Plotnitsky refused to hand these persons over despite Kornet's allegations that these individuals were involved in subversive activities and espionage in favor of Ukraine.
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.
