At least 2,665 civilians killed in Ukraine since the start of the Russian invasion — UN
The UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) recorded 5,718 civilian casualties in Ukraine from 4 a.m. on February 24, 2022, when the Russian Federation’s armed attack against Ukraine started, to 24:00 on April 24, 2022 (local time).
The data included 2,665 killed (855 men, 563 women, 59 girls, and 69 boys, as well as 67 children and 1,052 adults whose sex is yet unknown) and 3,053 injured (355 men, 284 women, 64 girls, and 71 boys, as well as 161 children and 2,118 adults whose sex is yet unknown).
Most of the civilian casualties recorded were caused by explosive weapons with a wide impact area, including shelling from heavy artillery and multiple launch rocket systems, missiles, and airstrikes.
OHCHR believes that the actual figures are considerably higher, as the receipt of information from some locations where intense hostilities have been going on has been delayed, and many reports are still pending corroboration. This concerns, for example, Mariupol (Donetsk region), Izium (Kharkiv region), and Popasna (Luhansk region), where there are allegations of numerous civilian casualties.
