Ukraine violence toll: 103 dead, 1 419 injured

PanARMENIAN.Net - The death toll from the unrest in Ukraine that led to the ouster of the country’s president last month has risen to 103, the country’s Ministry of Health said Thursday, March 20, according to RIA Novosti.

Previous casualty figures stood at 102 dead and 1,419 injured. The ministry said on its website that 128 people injured in the conflict remain in treatment in city hospitals.

Demonstrations broke out in Kiev in November following a step back from closer ties with Europe by President Viktor Yanukovych, who was ousted by a vote of parliament following deadly clashes between demonstrators and police.

Crimea, along with several other regions in the country’s southeast, refused to recognize the legitimacy of the new government.

A referendum held last Sunday in the predominantly Russian peninsula saw an overwhelming majority of voters support unification with Russia after 60 years as part of Ukraine.
