The Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights recorded 953 fatalities and around 1,500 injured civilians in Ukraine.

On March 22, the OHCHR published a press release covering the numbers of civil casualties across Ukraine:

  • Ukrainian regions under attack (Kyiv, Kharkiv, Chernihiv, Sumy, Zhytomyr, etc.): 1,432 casualties (682 killed and 750 injured)
  • Donetsk and Luhansk regions in the East of Ukraine: 1,078 casualties (271 killed and 807 injured)
  • The Ukrainian-controlled land: 827 casualties (216 killed and 611 injured)

In accordance with the recent report of the Prosecutor General’s Office in Ukraine, 117 children were killed, and more than 155 people were injured. 

“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,” the OHCHR reports.

The UN regularly publishes updated information on civil casualties in Ukraine daily.
