Из-за войны погибли 10 тысяч украинцев – президент

More than 20 thousand people were injured due to the conflict.

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that for more than two years of conflict in the Donbass, more than 10 thousand Ukrainians were killed and over 20 thousand were wounded. He stated, speaking during a segment of the leaders of the world humanitarian summit in Istanbul, the press service of the President.

“For more than two years, my country is the target of Russian aggression. The humanitarian consequences of this aggression are more than 10 thousand victims of Ukrainians, more than 20 thousand injured and an estimated 1.8 million internally displaced persons”, – said Poroshenko.

The President also named three key elements to strengthen the response to conflict and humanitarian challenges. “First, we must do everything we can to restore respect for international law and to ensure the effectiveness of international instruments to resolve conflicts and prosecute those who started them. It is our collective responsibility,” he said.

Second, it emphasizes the President, to succeed on this path “we must be United in solidarity and to demonstrate strong political leadership”. “Mean, in particular, the discussion of sanctions. No one should feel punished. Only when we manage to resolve the conflict, we will be able to tackle the lion’s share of humanitarian challenges,” predicts the head of state.

The third aspect, according to the President, is that the Ukrainian experience in the Donbas indicates that it is very important not only time to focus on urgent humanitarian needs, and durable solutions.
