Wounded observers, according to Hug, were taken to a hospital in occupied Lugansk. Another three OSCE members were sent to the Organization's base in the Luhansk region.

Also, Hug said that the road on which the explosion occurred was previously used by local residents and the OSCE patrols, therefore there should not be mines on it.
