Two people were killed and several injured on Monday in an explosion in Luhansk which separatists controlling the eastern Ukrainian city said was the result of an air strike by the Ukrainian military.This was denied by the Kiev side, which said it was caused by separatists who had misfired when they tried to launch a missile from the regional administration building at a Ukrainian fighter jet.Vladyslav Seleznyov, a spokesman for the operation against the separatists, denied there had been any air strike against the regional administration offices.But he acknowledged air strikes against two separatist checkpoints in Luhansk region.In the case of Luhansk, a depressed industrial city of about half a million close to the border with Russia, an armed group calling itself the People's Army of the East seized the main administration and other buildings in early April and hoisted the Russian flag.
