UNITED NATIONS, June 9. /TASS/. The number of internally displaced people increased by almost 10,000 and reached 1,325,154 in the period of May 30 to June 5, says a weekly report published by the UN Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs [OCHA].
Along with it, some 878,000 Ukrainians were seeking refuge in neighboring countries, which is 11,000 more than in the previous reporting period.
This means that 2.2 million Ukrainian citizens, inclusive of the registered internally displaced individuals, have left the places of permanent residence after April 2014 when hostilities broke out in Donbass, the crisis-stricken country's former industrial heartland.
Information released by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights [OHCHR] suggests no less than 6,454 people died in eastern Ukraine as of the moment of the start of the war there and through to June 3, 2015, while 16,146 others were wounded.
