Description

Human Rights Watch accuses Ukrainian government forces and pro-Russian militias of serious abuses in the ongoing war in the country’s east, especially in Luhansk. The international rights organization says many government attacks were indiscriminate and didn’t distinguish between civilians and the militias. The WHO cites doctors in Luhansk as saying that explosive weapons have killed more than three-hundred civilians in the city since May. The Human Rights Watch says Luhansk residents are facing terrifying daily shelling, with much of it apparently unlawful. Also, the UN Refugee Agency says more than half a million people in Ukraine have been displaced since the beginning of the crisis there. Over 2600 people have been killed since mid-April.
