MOSCOWE, August 14 /TASS/. More than 5,000 people have died in the territory of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) since the start of the Donbas war, a source at the office of DPR’s human rights ombudsman said on Friday.
"A total of 5,061 people, including 4,295 men and 766 women, have perished since the start of the military conflict. In their statistical reports, forensic experts do not clarify whether those victims have occurred among civilians or militias," the source said.
According to the DPR’s Center of Emergency Medical Aid, 6,100 people have been wounded over the period of combat operations.
"Kiev is demonstrably neglecting the lives of peaceful civilians and is openly violating its international commitments to guarantee the rights of civilians in Donbas," the source concluded.
