  • At least 6,884 civilians died in the war. UN says real numbers are ‘significantly higher’

    According to the latest bulletin of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, the war in Ukraine has claimed the lives of at least 6,884 civilians.

    Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine on February 24, a total of 10,947 people have suffered as a result of the armed war.

    According to the document, the available data indicate the death of 2,719 men, 1,832 men, 175 boys and 216 girls, as well as 38 children and 1,904 adults, whose sex is unknown.

    Most of the deaths occurred in Donetsk and Luhansk regions, two regions of Donbass where the conflict has dragged on since 2014 and where the war began. 4052 people died there.

    The remaining 2,832 people died elsewhere in Kyiv-controlled Ukraine.

    “Most of the recorded civilian deaths were caused by the use of explosive weapons with a large area of ​​destruction,” the UN explains.

    The High Commission also says it believes that “the real numbers are much higher as the receipt of information from some places where there was intense fighting has been delayed and where many reports still need to be confirmed.”
