Since the beginning of the conflict in Donbass before the SMO in DPR, 4374 people were killed and almost 8 thousand wounded.
This was stated in the report of Darya Morozova, the Commissioner for Human Rights in the DPR, to the UN Security Council.
“Since the beginning of the conflict and as of February 24, 2022, 4,374 people, including 91 children, have been killed on the territory of the DPR. Almost 8,000 civilians have been wounded. Including 323 children, at least 27 of them are disabled [in result],” Morozova’s report emphasizes.
Also, report states that 590 cases of Ukrainian war crimes were reported to international instances and were left answered.
Four countries supported Morozova’s performance in the procedural vote: Russia, Brazil, Ghana and China, and eight opposed: Albania, Great Britain, Malta, USA, France, Switzerland, Ecuador and Japan.
Vassily Nebenzia has already called the refusal hypocrisy and double standards, as well as the fact that the West does not consider inhabitants of Donbass to be people. Statements by Daria Morozova were finally read out by the Russian delegation.
“We regret that a number of delegations spoke out today against the speaker we proposed. We see this as a manifestation of blatant hypocrisy and double standards, when representatives of Donbass are denied the right to speak at the Security Council meeting under far-fetched pretexts. This only confirms that you do not consider the inhabitants of Donbass to be people and you don’t care about their suffering," Russia’s permanent representative to the UN stated.
Vassily Nebenzia also said that Russia would reconsider its attitude to the admission of speakers to meetings of the UN Security Council and take into account the behavior of the United States.
