Fresh report claims both sides have tortured prisoners
The United Nations Friday accused both the Ukrainian authorities and pro-Russian rebels of torturing fighters and their sympathizers captured in the separatist east.
The condemnation from the world governing body came with violence once again flaring after a period of relative calm in the 25-month war.
The Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) said 9,371 people have been killed and 21,532 wounded since the revolt against the pro-Western government in Kiev began in Ukraine's industrial heartland in April 2014.
