DONETSK, December 8. /TASS/. One person has been killed and 5, including 2 children, taken to hospital with injuries as a result of shelling of the city of Gorlovka in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) in the east of Ukraine, the press service of the DPR Emergencies Ministry reported on Monday.
According to the ministry, a shell hit a private house at about 22:00pm, Moscow time (19:00pm GMT), killing a man born in 1959.
A man born in 1972 and 2 women born in 1949 and 1979 were injured in the shelling.
Also 2 children born in 2009 and 2013 were injured and taken to hospital. According to the United Nations, more than 3,000 people have been killed in the armed conflict in Ukraine since the beginning of the anti-terrorism operation by the Ukrainian security forces against the separatist people’s militia in the country’s east.
The fighting in eastern Ukraine this year has internally displaced over half a million people leaving them vulnerable to the harsh winter months ahead, the United Nations Refugee Office (UNHCR) said on December 5 as aid workers race against the clock to distribute essential cold-weather supplies. UNHCR spokesperson William Spindler said in a Geneva briefing that the fighting has also forced over two hundred thousand Ukrainians to flee to Russia and other neighbouring countries. Applications for asylum by Ukrainian citizens have also risen in the European Union (EU) this year, Spindler told journalists.
