OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) clarified the date about victims among civilian population, according to the mission’s report for April 30.

"On 28 April, in “LPR”-controlled Fashchivka (60km south-west of Luhansk), the SMM saw a completely destroyed trailer and assessed that it had probably struck an anti-tank mine." the message reads.

According to OSCE, a man who said he was a former Luhansk Railway Company employee told the SMM that on 24 April six railway workers (four men 40-60 years old and two women, aged 45 and 55 respectively) had been traveling in a tractor with a trailer when the latter had hit a mine at the north-western edge of the village. He said that one man had died on the spot, while the other people were taken to a hospital in “LPR”-controlled Perevalsk (38km west of Luhansk), where the two women subsequently died, OSCE informs.

"Medical staff at the hospital, as well as the brother of one of the injured persons and several residents of the town repeated the same information to the SMM. The Mission also saw a registry at the Perevalsk hospital stating that the five people were admitted on 24 April with injuries. A medical staff member at the hospital told the SMM the three people who had suffered injuries remained in hospital care," it was also added.
