LPR police has solved the murder of Colonel Oleg Anaschenko and detained the suspects, said LPR Interior Minister Igor Kornet.
On February 4, Anaschenko was killed in a car blast in Lugansk.
"In course of the immediate operational investigation officers of the Interior Ministry identified and apprehended the suspects of facilitating the act of terror."
"All of them are servicemen of Ukrainian armed forces special forces deployed to Lugansk among other reconnaissance-sabotage group personnel, to carry out terror acts on the Security Service of the Ukraine (SBU) commands. They are being interrogated," said the minister.
Kornet added that police also discovered a booby-trapped weapons cache, thus preventing a huge tragedy as the explosive device was equivalent of 1.5 kg of TNT and contained fragmentation-generating objects.
