GENEVA, September 08./ITAR-TASS/. The conflict in east Ukraine has taken at least 3,000 lives since April, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein told an opening session of the assembly's Human Rights Council on Monday.

“We remain concerned about the situation in Ukraine," he said. "UNHCHR's latest monthly report gives a full picture of current human rights challenges, especially in the east, where at least 3,000 people have been killed since mid-April this year,” he said.

“The council will specifically deal with this situation later in the session and an official UNHCHR report will be presented at that time,” Al Hussein added. Statistics previously recorded put deaths at 2,593 and 6,000 wounded including 38 children, he said, adding that the Ukraine issue would be discussed on September 23.
