"According to our materials, Plotnitsky is on the territory of the Russian Federation. That's all can I say for now, because it's better to show specific materials," he said.
As it was reported earlier, an open confrontation began between two militant groups in Luhansk in November. One was headed by Plotnitsky and the other one - by the "head of the Interior Ministry of the LNR" Igor Cornet. There were people in military uniform, as well as armored vehicles in the center of the occupied city.
Later, on November 24, Igor Plotnitsky filed for "resignation" "due to bad health." And the so-called "State Security Minister" Leonid Pasechnik became the leader of "LNR".
