OSCE Confirms 'Rockets' Used In Lugansk Explosion

The latest OSCE report is filled with important information, and we will make a full update and assessment in our next update, but the piece that people are focusing on is their write-up of yesterday's incidents in Lugansk. The OSCE confirms that based on their own observations the separatists headquarters, inside the Regional Administration Building, was indeed struck by rockets fired from a Ukrainian aircraft:

In Luhansk the situation remained volatile. On 2 June, shortly after 15:00 hrs, rockets hit the occupied regional administration building. Based on the SMM’s limited observation these strikes were the result of non-guided rockets shot from an aircraft. The number of casualties is unknown.

A number of Luhansk city and region inhabitants tried to escape the combat zone. The SMM learned that trains to Kharkiv and Kyiv appeared to be fully booked for the next couple of days.

Interestingly, the report does not mention the fighting in southwest Lugansk, where separatists launched a large offensive yesterday morning.
