About 1,000-2,000 women die from domestic violence in Ukraine every year.

Ukrainian MP Iryna Lutsenko said this at the inter-agency meeting on fulfillment of the National Action Plan to implement the UN Security Council Resolution 1325 "Women, Peace and Security" in Kramatorsk on Tuesday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"About 1,000-2,000 women die from domestic violence in Ukraine every year. Another 3 million children in Ukraine are victims and are involved in domestic violence," she said.

According to Lutsenko, who visited Kharkiv region with a similar trip three days ago, it is especially important to combat domestic violence in war-torn Donetsk and Luhansk regions.

The lawmaker noted that women made up 54% of the total working population of Ukraine, "and therefore we cannot ignore their safety and safety of their children."
