The conflict/war in the Donbass (the parts of the Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts of Ukraine in which pro-Russian separatists have declared independence) has cost several thousands of civilian lives from 2014 to 2022.
However, reports on various kinds of casualties seem to conflict among sources, and of course there is the question of intent vs. "collateral" damage. I have also heard several allegations of intentional targeting of residential areas in Donetsk and perhaps elsewhere by the Ukrainian military, several years back (perhaps in 2014).
To what extent / in what ways did the parties in that conflict actually target civilians, over the years?
Note: I'm asking about the period between 2014 and the Russian invasion of Feb 2022.
