269 ​​citizens have died in the DPR since the beginning of the escalation of aggression by the Armed Forces of Ukraine

During the 163 days of escalation of aggression by the armed forces of Ukraine in the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), 269 civilians, including 16 children, were killed. This was reported on July 29 at the DPR representative office in the Joint Center for Control and Coordination of the Ceasefire Regime (JCCC).

“Complete data on the dead civilians in the territory liberated during the special operation are being established. Before the start of the special operation, 1,271 civilians, including 96 children, were injured on the territory (DPR. – Ed.) within the borders of the special operation,” the representative office said in a statement.

It also provides data on the number of wounded civilians in the liberated territories of the republic by Ukrainian militants during the special operation: 1511 civilians, including 87 children.

Also, during the 163 days of the escalation of the DPR JCCC, 6842 facts of firing by Ukrainian militants were recorded, of which 6511 were using heavy weapons.

On June 17, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the inhabitants of the Donbass republics had been subjected to genocide by the Kyiv regime and neo-Nazis for eight years, so Moscow’s decision to conduct a special operation was necessary.

Before that, on April 12, Putin said that what is happening in Ukraine is a tragedy, but Russia had no choice. The President noted that the special operation is going according to plan, and the timing of its completion depends on the intensity of hostilities. In addition, he expressed confidence that the goals of the special operation will be achieved, since the tasks assigned to the Russian army are noble.

On February 24, Russia announced the start of a special operation to protect the civilian population of Donbass. It began against the backdrop of the situation in the region that worsened in mid-February. Then the authorities of the DPR and LPR reported on the increased shelling by the Ukrainian troops, announced the evacuation of the civilian population in the Russian Federation and asked for recognition of independence. On February 21, the President of the Russian Federation signed a corresponding decree.

Since 2014, Kyiv has been conducting a military operation against the inhabitants of Donbass, who refused to recognize the results of the coup d’état in Ukraine.
