A child suffered in the result of the mine explosion near occupied Horlivka is in the medium to the severe state. Pavlo Lysyansky, the representative of the Ukrainian Parliament Commissioner for Human Rights in Donetsk and Luhansk regions claimed this as 112 Ukraine reported.
“The injured child is in the medium to the severe state. He is in shock, a boy miraculously survived. As I was reported and as he said, he was walking the last and was lucky to survive, he was blown away by the blast,” he noted.
Lysyansky also added that the landed ammunition was planted by the pro-Russian militants.
“It is an unexploded ammunition or any other mine – it is unknown yet, but fact still remains – it took place at the territory controlled by the illegal military formation “Donetsk People’s Republic” and the ammunition that caused the death of three children was planted by them,” he emphasized.
As we earlier reported three children were killed, another child was injured as a result of the detonation of an antipersonnel fragmentation mine near Horlivka in Donbas.
Also, 1,858 people have suffered the consequences of mishandling explosives in Donbas since April 2014. Maksym Komisarov, the chief of Defense Ministry's department for environmental safety and counter-mine activity said. He added that over a hundred children sustained wounds due to mishandling explosives, 21 of them died.
