The Office of the Commissioner for Human Rights of the People’s Republic of Donetsk said that in self-proclaimed south-eastern Ukraine, 7 people killed and seven injured last week in a shooting by the Ukrainian army, the Russian News Agency reported on Saturday.

The Office explained that all but one of the victims were military personnel.

Since the beginning of the year, 121 people have been killed and 103 people have been killed, bringing the death toll in Donetsk to 4,832 since the Ukrainian army launched a military operation in southeastern Ukraine in April 2014.

According to the latest statistics from the United Nations, over 300 000 people have been displaced within Ukraine and over 150 000 have fled to the Russian Federation.

Several thousand people have sought protection in other European countries, mainly Poland and Belarus.

More than 2 million people remain in the areas controlled by separatist forces, exposed to insecurity, serious human rights violations and inadequate living conditions.
