    UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein stated while presenting the 16th report of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) on the situation in Ukraine that more than 10,000 people have been killed in in Donbass.

    GENEVA (Sputnik) — More than 10,000 people have been killed in Ukraine's conflict, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein said Monday.

    "In September, casualties fell four-fold compared to August. Due to renewed shelling in October, civilian casualties scaled up to the levels observed during the summer. In November and early December they again decreased. I hope the downward trend will continue," Hussein said while presenting the 16th report of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) on the situation in Ukraine.
