UN Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights Ivan Šimonović stated that the official number of the people, who died as a result of the conflict in eastern Ukraine, reached 8050,

“These figures include casualties among the armed forces, civilians, members of armed groups; and these estimations of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights are approximate. We believe that the real figure is much higher, and we are constantly working to fill gaps in our records about victims,” said Šimonović. According to UN Assistant Secretary-General, 1.5 mln Ukrainians became IDPs. 

In the beginning of September UN also released the data of the number of wounded during the Donbas conflict. The official number is 18 thousand people.
