The Foreign Affairs Minister of the Russian Federation Sergey Lavrov called the "Head" of the “Luhansk People's Republic " Igor Plotnitsky the “Head of the Lao Republic."

The Foreign Affairs Minister made a slip of the tongue while voicing Russia’s concern over the situation in the Donbas.

I'm not talking about the assassination attempt on the Head of the proclaimed Lao... O Lord, Luhansk People's Republic, Mr. Plotnitskiy, said Lavrov.

As QHA reported earlier, an assassination attempt on Igor Plotnitsky was committed in the morning of August, 6. His car was blown up in the city of Luhansk. The leader of the Luhansk militants was severely injured and hospitalized.

On Saturday night, the Plotnitskiy’s official website posted his audio address in which he said that "nothing serious has happened," and that he "is alive and well."
