UN records 4,432 civilians killed in Ukraine since Russian invasion started.

The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) has recorded 9,931 civilian casualties in Ukraine since the Russian invasion started, including 4,432 killed and 5,499 injured.

The relevant statement was made by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights in a daily update on June 14, 2022, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

In particular, among the killed, there were 1,693 men, 1,138 women, 103 girls and 106 boys, as well as 68 children and 1,324 adults whose sex is yet unknown.

Among the injured, there were 1,123 men, 780 women, 124 girls and 159 boys, as well as 173 children and 3,140 adults whose sex is yet unknown.

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 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.

A reminder that, on February 24, 2022, Russia started a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Russian troops are destroying the key infrastructure facilities and extensively firing at the residential areas of Ukrainian cities and villages with artillery, multiple launch rocket systems and ballistic missiles.
