MOSCOW, May 15. /TASS/. Kiev’s military operation in east Ukraine’s Donetsk region has damaged over 9,500 facilities, inflicting a total damage of over 2 billion hryvnia (about $100 million), according to a report published by Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) ombudsman Daria Morozova on Friday.
"As of May 8, 2015, the armed hostilities in the region damaged or destroyed 9,538 infrastructure facilities with damage estimated at over 2 billion hryvnia," the report said.
The cities of Donetsk and Makeyevka have suffered most, with 6,066 and 1,016 facilities, respectively, either damaged or destroyed, according to the report.
Overall, Kiev’s military operation has destroyed over 5,300 houses, 605 electricity transmission lines, 53 health care facilities and 252 educational establishments in the DPR, the report said.
Thousands have been killed and hundreds of thousands of people have fled Ukraine’s embattled east as a result of clashes between Ukrainian troops and local militias in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions during Kiev’s military operation, launched in mid-April 2014 to regain control over parts of the breakaway territories, which call themselves the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics.
