During March 1-22 monitoring mission of the UN on human rights in Ukraine recorded 16 victims among the civilian population in the East of Ukraine.
“1 on March 22, there were 16 such cases: 1 killed and 15 wounded. Several cases are awaiting confirmation. Despite the fact that the March is not over, this is the highest monthly civilian toll since September, 2019”, – stated in the message.
The mission recommended to join the call of the UN Secretary General on global ceasefire and call on all parties in Eastern Ukraine to cease fire and fighting: “the Call is even more urgent because we have seen an increase in the number of deaths or injuries of civilians in the East of Ukraine.”
