Bloomberg Report - At least 3,682 people have been killed and 8,871 wounded in the conflict as of Oct. 8, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs said in a report on its website late yesterday. The UN said its estimate, based on official data that includes the Ukrainian army, armed groups, civilians and the 298 victims of Malaysian Air flight MH17, was “very conservative” and both it and the World Health Organization believe the numbers are considerably higher. There are more than 400,000 people who have fled their homes to other locations in Ukraine and about 430,000 who have left the country, the report said. About 40,000 small- and medium-sized businesses have shut their doors in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, where more than 5 million people are still at risk from the fighting, it said.
