THE UNITED NATIONS, March 4. /TASS/. There has been a sharp rise in the number of fatalities among civilians in east Ukraine in January-February 2017, amounting to 111 people, that is double the number in comparison to November-December 2016, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs said in the Humanitarian Bulletin covering the period January 1 through February 28.
"Since the beginning of the year, OHCHR verified 111 civilian casualties (20 deaths and 91 injuries), compared to 51 in November-December 2016," says the document released on Saturday.
The document points out that most civilians died or sustained wounds in result of "shelling from artillery, tanks" and multiple rocket launch systems.
