GENEVA, January 23. /TASS/. More than 5,000 people have died since the conflict in Ukraine began in April, UN human rights spokesman Rupert Colville told journalists in Geneva on Friday.
"The significant escalation in hostilities has taken the toll to 5,086 individuals and we fear the real figure may be considerably higher," the spokesman told a news briefing.
The death toll includes 262 people killed in the past nine days, believed to be “the most deadly period” since a ceasefire was declared in September under the Minsk agreement.
The UN refugee agency said that the Ukrainian government’s measures in the sphere of security undermine the efforts on delivering aid to the conflict zone in the country’s east and hamper the life of the displaced persons.
A spokesperson said Kiev’s refusal to pay social benefits to people in the territories of eastern Ukraine, which are not controlled by the government, has led to an increase in the number of the displaced persons.
