Horrific statistics: 500 Donbas war veterans committed suicide

Since the start of the war with Russia in Donbas, 500 Ukrainian army servicemen have committed suicide after their demobilization, Interior Minister Arsen Avakov writes in Facebook June 22.

According to international statistics of military conflicts, 90-95% of their participants develop medical and social problems, with a third diagnosed for the post-traumatic syndrome often leading to suicides, the minister writes.

 “We need a comprehensive national program targeted at the minimization of the post-traumatic syndrome. We must realize that this is a global problem in Ukraine,” Avakov says.
