MOSCOW, June 17. /TASS/. The number of citizens of towns and villages in the Kiev-controlled area of Donbas has reached more than 1,500 in the first half of 2015, the Donetsk region’s prosecutors said in a report on Wednesday.
"This year, the number of people who have gone missing in the region remains significantly on the rise. As of June 1, 2015, their number is 1,592," said the report quoted by the Donetsk news agency.
A search effort launched by Ukraine’s police on the territory of Donbas has located just 208 people. This is just 13% out of the overall number of those missing, the report reads.
The increase in the number of missing people has been reported in Artemovsk (115), Selidovo (88), Slavyansk (82), Kramatorsk (69), Dzershinsk (61), Maryinsky district (69) and the Oktyabrsky district of Mariupol (66), the prosecutors said.
These Donbas towns are currently under control of Ukraine's forces.
