Since the beginning of the military conflict in 2014 until Sept. 15, 2016, the OHCHR recorded 32,071 casualties among civilians, Ukrainian soldiers and members of paramilitary groups, including 9,640 killed and 22,431 injured, she noted.
According to Frazer, the office believes civilians make 20 percent of those killed. She also noted it was a conservative estimate based on available data.
