"During the military conflict in the Donbas almost 35 thousand people suffered: 10.2 thousand were killed, 24.5 thousand – wounded. The UN Office for Human Rights released such numbers. Between April 2014 and August 2017 2.500 civilians were killed in the Donbas, including 137 children," the leader of the Kiyiv OPPOSITION BLOC, Oleksandr Puzanov, wrote this on his Facebook page.
"There are scary numbers. I am sure the authorities also know about them. Instead of making every effort and stopping the war, which takes tens of thousands of lives, the government continues the conflict, covering themselves with pseudo-patriotic slogans. It does not care about the opinions of citizens who have long wanted peace," the politician notes.
He recalled that in the summer OPPOSITION BLOC held an action "We fight together! Together we will win!", during which agitators communicated with people, collected their signatures under party demands. "Everyone who came to our agitators supported the demand "To return the peace to Ukraine". People do not want to continue the war. Moreover, if the authorities do not agree with them, it's time to change it," Oleksandr Puzanov said.
