GENEVA, June 3. /TASS/. A total of 9,371 people have been killed - both civilians and military - and more than 21,500 others have been injured in a conflict in eastern Ukraine since mid-April 2014, the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) said in its report published on Friday.

"In total, from mid-April 2014 to 15 May 2016, OHCHR recorded 30,903 casualties in the conflict area in eastern Ukraine, among Ukrainian armed forces, civilians and members of the armed groups. This includes 9,371 people killed and 21,532 injured," the report reads.

"After two years, the situation in the east of Ukraine remains volatile and may develop into a ‘frozen conflict’, creating a protracted environment of insecurity and instability; escalate, with dire consequences for civilians living in the conflict affected area; or move towards sustainable peace through the meaningful implementation of the Minsk Package of Measures," the report reads.
