More than 10,000 civilian casualties in Ukraine due to Russia’s full-scale war
According to the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), 4,481 civilians have been killed and 5,565 injured in Ukraine. The most civilian casualties are reported in Donbas, with 2,611 killed and 3,103 injured. Most casualties were reportedly the result of “explosive weapons with a wide impact area, including shelling from heavy artillery and multiple launch rocket systems, and missile and airstrikes.”
OHCHR believes that the actual figures are considerably higher, as the information receipt from some locations with intense hostilities 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 allegations of numerous civilian casualties are.
