Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said that the conflict in the territory of Donbass resulted in the deaths of about 14 thousand people
“So far, some 14,000 people have been killed in the Donbass. This number includes servicemen [of the Ukrainian Armed Forces] and civilian casualties. We regularly clarify this data”, – Kuleba said during a working visit to Slovakia.
The Ukrainian foreign minister also said that Ukraine will achieve NATO membership as support among the country’s residents increased significantly in 2014. Kuleba said that about 50 per cent of Ukrainians “support the country’s accession to the EU and over 40 per cent to NATO”.
Additional ceasefire monitoring measures have been in place in Donbass since July 2020, which were agreed by the participants in the Trilateral Contact Group (TCG). However, the Ukrainian side continues to regularly violate the ceasefire by shelling the territories of the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics in an impartial manner.Palestinian president accuses Israel of ethnic cleansing in Jerusalem
