The conflict in eastern Ukraine has killed nearly 2,600 people since mid-April, the United Nations said Friday in their latest report, explaining the sharp increase by fighting in densely populated areas between Kiev's army and pro-Russian rebels.

"At least 2,593 people have been killed in Ukraine between mid-April and 27 August 2014," the report said, noting human rights violations like abductions and torture are "committed primarily by the armed groups" fighting the Ukrainian army.
