UN reports that as of the end of 2015 more than 9.000 people died in the conflict in eastern Ukraine including 2.000 civilians. Most of them died as a result of “inaccurate rocket and mortar shelling”. Military crimes and other violations of international humanitarian right from both sides of the conflict included torture, violent treatment with the detained, executions of captives by separatists.

Ukraien alos failed to punish those guilty of violations and abuse during pro-European demonstrations in Kyiv in 2013-2014 (Euromaidan). In 2015 not a single guilty verdict concerning Maidan crimes was issued.
