GENEVA, March 15. /TASS/. Nearly 10,000 people were killed in Donbass since the conflict broke out while over 23,000 were left wounded, Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) said in a report on the human rights situation in Ukraine published on Wednesday.
"From mid-April 2014 to 15 February, 2017, OHCHR recorded 33,146 conflict-related casualties in Ukraine, among Ukrainian Armed Forces, civilians and members of the armed groups. This includes 9,900 people killed and 23,246 injured," the report reads.
The report covers the period from November 16, 2016, to February 15, 2017. During this period, "OHCHR recorded 130 conflict related civilian casualties in Ukraine: 23 deaths (seven women, 15 men and a boy) and 107 injuries (26 women and a girl, 69 men and a boy, and eight adults and two children whose sex is not known)," the report says.
The Commission stressed that "the impact of the ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine on human rights illustrates the urgent need for the full implementation of the provisions of the Minsk agreements."
The report points out that the parties to the conflict continue to violate the "right to life, physical integrity, liberty and security." The Commission also said that "summary executions, disappearances, arbitrary detention, and torture and ill-treatment" cases committed in 2014, 2015 and 2016 had been recorded.
