“12,800-13,000 people died out of this number (3,320 civilians, including 298 passengers of downed MH17, 4,000 Ukrainian soldiers and 5,5000 militants); 27,500-30,000 people were injured (7-9,000 civilians, 9-10,000 Ukrainian soldiers and 12-13,000 militants),” Osnat Lubrani, the Head of UN Office reported.
Totally, 25-26% of the victims are civilians.
“This percent changes with time. In 2014, the share of the civilians among victims made 33-34%, in other words, one civilian for two deceased in combat actions. In 2018, according to the estimations, this number makes 10-11%, one civilian for 9-10 deceased in combat actions. We can say the same about injured people,” the message said.
According to the data from UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission, from 12,800 up to 13,000 people died since the beginning of Donbas Conflict (April 2014 - end of 2018).
As we reported over three months, from August 16 to November 15, 14 civilians died in combat actions in eastern Ukraine. 36 more were injured.
