Disproof

According to the UN report, from 16 May to 15 August 2017, the UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine recorded 26 conflict-related civilian deaths and 135 injuries. At least 2,803 civilians have been killed, and between 7,000 and 9,000 civilians injured during the conflict overall. www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?NewsID=57497#.WcoQOWcdiEB

“The socio-economic situation in eastern Ukraine continued to deteriorate. Hardships caused by the hostilities, measures hindering economic prosperity, and rising unemployment have led to increased levels of poverty on both sides of the contact line,” the UN Human Rights Office reported. www.ohchr.org/EN/NewsEvents/Pages/DisplayNews.aspx?NewsID=22049&LangID=E
