MOSCOW, March 31. /TASS/. Russia’s special services have their own statistics on the death toll in Ukraine’s southeast, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday noting that there are no grounds to trust Kiev’s data.
"I don’t think that we have grounds to trust Kiev’s analytics," Peskov said, commenting on the statement of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko that a total of 10,000 people have been killed since the armed conflict in Donbass started in April 2014.
"No doubt, our special services have statistics on the possible figures," Peskov said.
The United Nations in its report earlier this month that at least 9,160 people have been killed and another 21,000 have been injured since the conflict began in Donbass.
