At a meeting with Ombudsman Lyudmyla Denisova, the head of the UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine Fiona Frazer stated that the UN would publish data on the number of victims in the Donbas for the period of 4 years.

"We want to keep you informed as an ally in advancing a comprehensive rehabilitation policy and assistance to civilians that suffered in the conflict zone. We have information and up-to-date statistics on the victims, our records contain the names of 90% of the deceased during the war," Frazer said.

As Denisova noted, in Ukraine today there is no single register of victims of the conflict in the East. The Ombudsman said that she often has to write requests to various state bodies to get information, or to communicate with human rights defenders.

As it was reported earlier, Ukraine lost 100 billion dollars because of Russian aggression in Crimea and Donbas. This is stated in the study of the Atlantic Council analytical center, which was presented at the Ukrainian Crisis Media Center.

Thus, the study says that after the annexation of Crimea, Ukraine lost 1.4 million hectares of land, which are estimated at more than 1.8 billion dollars. In addition, banks lost their assets, which remained in the bank branches (from 1.7 to 1.9 billion dollars). Together with this, Russia confiscated "Krymenergo", that is, Ukraine lost $ 1 billion.

In Donbas, most of the infrastructure has been destroyed because of the fighting. In the study, experts estimated losses of 9.5 billion dollars. And after the decrease in the share of trade with Russia, Ukraine lost another $ 14 billion.
