UN: Over 8,000 civilians die in Ukraine since beginning of war

    WORLD  21 March 2023 - 14:38

    From February 24, 2022, which marked the start of the large-scale armed attack by the Russian Federation, to March 19, 2023, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) recorded 22,209 civilian casualties in the country: 8,317 killed and 13,892 injured.

    According to the message posted on the OHCHR website, this included:

    • 17,820 casualties (6,446 killed and 11,374 injured) in territory controlled by the Government when casualties occurred:

    • In Donetsk and Luhansk regions: 9,182 casualties (3,822 killed and 5,360 injured); and

    • In other regions: 8,638 casualties (2,624 killed and 6,014 injured).

    • 4,389 casualties (1,871 killed and 2,518 injured) in territory occupied by the Russian Federation when casualties occurred:

    • In Donetsk and Luhansk regions: 2,910 casualties (636 killed and 2,274 injured); and

    • In other regions: 1,479 casualties (1,235 killed and 244 injured).

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

    Civilian casualties from 1 to 19 March 2023 (individual cases verified by OHCHR)

    From 1 to 19 March 2023, OHCHR recorded 469 civilian casualties in Ukraine:

    • 113 killed (60 men, 34 women, 4 boys, 1 girl, as well as 14 adults whose sex is not yet known); and

    • 356 injured (149 men, 75 women, 17 boys, 1 girl, as well as 114 adults whose sex is not yet known).
