Throughout the entire period of Russia's armed aggression against Ukraine, over 14,000 people have deceased. This is noted in the statement of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry on the occasion of the 46th anniversary of the United Nations General Assembly Resolution 3314 (Definition of Aggression).
"On December 14, 1974, the UN General Assembly approved Resolution 3314 (XXIX), which defined the term 'aggression'. For seven years, Russia has been grossly violating the UN Charter, this resolution, and its other international legal obligations by carrying out armed aggression against Ukraine," the statement said.
In addition to the deaths of 14,000 people, almost 40,000 people were injured as a result of the Russian aggression in eastern Ukraine. More than 1.5 million Crimean and Donbas residents had to flee their homes as internally displaced persons and relocate to Ukrainian-controlled territory. At the same time, 170,000 Russians were moved to the occupied Crimea.
Thus, Ukrainian diplomats call on the international community to make every effort to restore peace and security on the European continent.
As we reported earlier, back in November, the U.S., together with the international organization IREX, launched a two-year program to support internally displaced persons in Ukraine.
