Civilian casualties have continued to rise in eastern Ukraine, as hostilities have intensified along the ‘contact line’. In May 2018, OHCHR recorded 61 civilian casualties (12 killed and 49 injured), which is the highest so far in 2018. The humanitarian situation in the Chyhari settlement (Donetska oblast) remains of concern due to intense fighting which broke out on 27 May. Eleven houses were reportedly destroyed and 50 damaged in the settlement, which is approximately 800 metres from the ‘contact line’.
