Tsaryov said more than 1,129 civilians, including 348 women and 76 children, have been killed since a military operation started in mid-April.
City infrastructure has been destroyed, and many cities have been left without electricity and gas supply, he said. “What is going on in the Donetsk and Luhansk people’s republics can be described only as genocide against the population.

Tass reported earlier, that on August 1 a group of 19 American Republican senators demanded from President Barack Obama to recognize the Donetsk and Luhansk republics as terrorist organisations, blacklisting them.
