The UN: At least 953 civilians were killed in Ukraine


The United Nations reported on Tuesday that at least 953 civilians were killed in Ukraine during the Russo-Ukrainian war.


The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees said in a statement on Tuesday that between February 24 and March 22, at least 953 civilians were killed and 1,557 others were injured.

He pointed out that the number of dead and wounded could be much higher than what is known.

Earlier, Ukraine announced that the child casualties had risen to 117 dead and 155 injured since the start of the Russian military operation in the country.

The statement of the Ukrainian Prosecutor’s Office indicated that children in the cities of Kyiv, Kharkiv and Chernihiv were the most affected by the Russian military intervention.

On February 24, Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine, which was followed by angry international reactions and the imposition of “tough” economic and financial sanctions on Moscow.


Russia requires Ukraine to abandon any plans to join military entities, including the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, “NATO”, and to adhere to complete neutrality, which Kyiv considers an “interference in its sovereignty” to end the operation.
