2016 Explosive Violence updateukraine-deaths-an-injuries-from-ground-launch-attack

So far in 2016 (January – September), Ukraine has seen 138 deaths and injuries from explosive violence. Of these, 47% (65) have been civilians. When explosive violence has been used in populated areas, 100% of the casualties have been civilian. However, compared to other impacted countries, little of the explosive violence has in fact taken place in areas reported to be populated – only about 37% of civilian deaths and injuries occurred in places reported as populated, such as residential areas or commercial premises.

80% of civilian deaths and injuries have been caused by ground-launched explosive violence such as shelling. The remainder have been due to IEDs and mines.
