Over the past two weeks the death toll in the Ukrainian conflict has almost doubled to more than 2,000 people, UN human rights spokeswoman Cecile Pouilly said at a press conference on Wednesday, according to Reuters.
“The estimated death toll in the Ukraine conflict nearly doubled to at least 2,086 as of Aug. 10 from 1,129 on July 26,” she said.
Pouilly added that nearly 5,000 have been wounded to date.
On average, more than 60 people a day have been killed or wounded since fighting began in mid-April in eastern Ukraine, rising to at least 70 people a day in the first week of August, she said.
The figures for casualties include Ukrainian soldiers, armed groups, pro-Russian militants and civilians, but are "very conservative estimates", Pouilly said.
