VIENNA, August 12. /ITAR-TASS/. Civilian casualties resulting from Kiev’s military operation in Ukraine’s eastern Donbas region are increasing, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) said on Tuesday.
According to the latest report on Ukraine prepared by the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) to Ukraine, “civilians continue to leave Donbass, whilst shelling allegedly continues to take a significant toll on human life".
"A group of internally displaced persons (IDPs) from Pervomais'k (76km west of Luhansk city) spoke to the SMM at Svatovo IDP transit camp (150km northwest of Luhansk city). They said that only 10,000 of Pervomais'k’s 80,000 inhabitants remained in the town. The town, they said, was being shelled by both Ukrainian military forces and irregular armed forces. The result, they said, was that almost all apartment blocks in the town had sustained damage, and only 30% of detached houses were intact. They said that 200 people had been killed in the town, and more than 400 wounded, since the shelling allegedly started on 22 July," the report says.
