Donetsk, Dec 1 – DAN. The DPR public committee for registering Ukrainian authorities’ war crimes has passed evidence on 489 people killed and wounded as the result of Ukrainian army offensive in Donbass to the International Criminal Court in The Hague since mid-2015, said the committee’s member Elena Shishkina.

“Since the start of our work, we have passed files on 489 casualties, including 352 adults and 137 minors,” she said.

In November, the committee passed evidence on 33 cases, covering 21 deaths and 31 injured persons.
