UN: At least 4,634 civilians killed in Ukraine war

From 4 a.m. on February 24, 2022, when the Russian Federation’s armed attack against Ukraine started, to 24:00 midnight on June 21, 2022 (local time), the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) recorded 10,403 civilian casualties in the country: 4,634 killed and 5,769 injured, SİA informs.

This included:

  • a total of 4,634 killed (1,780 men, 1,194 women, 131 girls, and 148 boys, as well as 41 children and 1,340 adults whose sex is yet unknown)
  • a total of 5,769 injured (1,163 men, 817 women, 131 girls, and 169 boys, as well as 178 children and 3,311 adults whose sex is yet unknown)

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), Popasna, Lysychansk, and Sievierodonetsk (Luhansk region), where there are allegations of numerous civilian casualties.

“Most of the civilian casualties recorded were caused by the use of explosive weapons with a wide impact area, including shelling from heavy artillery and multiple launch rocket systems, and missile and air strikes,” OHCHR said.
