Luhansk People’s Republic is an unrecognized state in the Donbass region of Ukraine. When the War in Donbass started in 2014, a few hundred separatists proclaimed it in part of the Luhansk Oblast. Luhansk Oblast is to the east of Ukraine, at the Ukrainian border with Russia. Approximately at the same time, other rebels formed the Donetsk People's Republic in Donesk Oblast. In both parts, there are many ethnic Russians. There was a claim that Russia helped start these unrecognized states. It is supposedly favorable to Russia.
