30,000 Killed or Wounded in Ukraine ‘Conflict’

Posted by feww on December 9, 2015

More than 9,000 people killed in Ukraine conflict: UN

At least 9,098 people—including civilians, soldiers and militia—have been killed since the the Ukraine conflict began in mid-April 2014 through mid-November 2015, with another 20,732 wounded, said a UN report.

Some 47 civilians were killed and 131 others wounded in the conflict zones of eastern Ukraine, between August 16 and November 15 this year, despite reduction in hostilities; however, human rights violations persist, said the new report.

A UN Human Rights Office report documents a decline in hostilities in the Ukrainian conflict. However it has raised concerns about lawlessness in the East of the country, describing it as governed by the rule of the gun.

It would be interesting to know the term(s) UN uses to describe the coup in Ukraine.
