Over 1,543 killed in Ukraine conflict in four months
United Nations: The UN said Friday that more than 1,543 people have been killed and another 4,396 wounded in Ukraine since fighting flared up in mid-April.
Ivan Simonovic, UN assistant secretary-general for human rights, delivered his latest Ukraine report to the 15 member UN Security Council in a formal meeting, citing figures provided by the UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine and the WHO, Xinhua reported.
The casualties included "civilians, military and members of the armed groups," or militants, he said.
"At least 50 people were being killed or wounded every day. The price being paid by all Ukrainians as a result of the conflict is too high. Ukrainians and Russian-Ukrainians in the east were losing their lives, but the whole country is paying the price of conflict as a result of the deterioration of social services," Simonovic said.
