The United Nations has recorded 21,965 casualties among the civilian population of Ukraine since the beginning of russia's invasion in 2022. Among them, 8,231 people were killed, and 13,734 were wounded.

Rubryka reports, referring to the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights or OHCHR report, that the UN has confirmed the deaths of 3,664 men, 2,173 women, 260 boys, and 203 girls. The gender of 31 children and 1,900 adults has not yet been determined.

According to the organization, 17,619 victims (6,372 dead and 11,247 wounded) were in the territory controlled by Ukraine at the time of the russian invasion.

From March 1 to 12 this year, the UN recorded 293 victims among Ukrainian civilians – 84 dead and 209 wounded.

The United Nations emphasized that the actual numbers of victims are much higher. After all, receiving information from places where intense hostilities occurred was delayed, and many reports have not yet been confirmed.

This primarily concerns the russia-occupied cities of Mariupol, Lysychansk, Popasna, Sievierodonetsk, and other settlements where there are numerous victims among the civilian population.

As Rubryka reported, according to the General Prosecutor's Office, as of the morning of March 10, 464 children were killed in Ukraine as a result of russia's full-scale war, and another 934 children were injured.
