DONETSK. April 20 (Interfax) – Four people were killed in hostilities in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) in the period of April 11-17, DPR Ombudsperson Darya Morozova said.

She posted her weekly socioeconomic report for the DPR on her website on Monday.

Morozova quoted official statistics from the DPR Health Ministry and forensic medicine authorities to say that the hostilities killed one civilian and three militiamen and, besides, seven civilians and five militiamen were hospitalized with injuries.

The DPR administration continues the search for bodies of Ukrainian servicemen, but the precise body count remains unknown, Morozova said. The never-ending bombardments are hindering the search, she added.

“The unfounded detention of DPR supporters by Ukraine goes on. Five people, including two civilians and three militiamen, went missing in the period of April 11-17, 2015,” the report said.

According to the report, over 9,400 infrastructure elements, including 5,307 homes, 605 electric power lines, 2,669 gas grid facilities, 53 healthcare facilities, 250 schools and kindergartens, 32 culture centers, 53 road infrastructure elements, 56 industrial sites, and 37 bridges, have been damaged or destroyed in the period of hostilities, with damages totaling more than 1.5 billion hryvni.
