Kiev’s army operation in Ukraine’s Southeast continues. According to the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, 200 militiamen and civilians have been killed during combat operations in April-June.
Earlier, the Rostov Region health minister did not specify whether the patients are militiamen or soldiers of Ukraine’s National Guard, adding that the region always provides medical assistance to everyone.
“Eight wounded people whose condition is assessed as satisfactory are currently undergoing inpatient treatment in medical institutions. Nine wounded are undergoing treatment in the district military hospital,” the minister said.
According to the Health Ministry, 30 wounded Ukrainian soldiers have been received by Rostov Region medical institutions since early June.
A Kiev-led military operation against federalization supporters in Ukraine's East that Kiev calls an antiterrorism operation involves armored vehicles, heavy artillery and attack aviation. It has already claimed hundreds of lives, including civilian, left some buildings destroyed and damaged and forced hundreds of millions of people to leave Ukraine for Russia.
The Donetsk and Luhansk regions, which border on Russia, held referendums on May 11, in which most voters supported independence from Ukraine. Their independence has not been officially recognized.
Russia has repeatedly called on Kiev to end the punitive operation and engage in dialogue with Ukraine’s Southeast. The operation, however, continues under newly elected President Petro Poroshenko, who won the May 25 early presidential elections and took office on June 7.
