MOSCOW, May 10. /TASS/. A memorial to civilians who have died during the armed conflict in the Donbass region in eastern Ukraine will be erected in Donetsk by the end of October, Economic Development Minister of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Yevgeniya Samokhina said on Sunday.
"We are planning to implement this art project before the end of this October. The DPR government will deal with its construction. It’s very large-scale project," the Donetsk news agency quotes her as saying.
Samokhina added that financial assistance would be provided by an art center in Russia’s Rostov-on-Don.
Donetsk Mayor Igor Martynov noted that the planning documentation was under development now. "As soon as it is ready, the monument’s construction will begin at the site chosen in accordance with the instruction of DPR head Alexander Zakharchenko," Martynov said.
Earlier on Sunday, speaker of the DPR People’s Council Andrey Purgin said that between 6,000 and 10,000 civilians died during the military conflict in Donbass.
