UN: 1,081 civilians killed in Ukraine as a result of the Russian war


On Friday, the United Nations announced that at least 1,081 civilians were killed and 1,707 wounded in Ukraine as a result of Russian attacks.


The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees said in a statement that 3,725,806 Ukrainians have sought refuge in neighboring countries.

More than half of them traveled to Poland between February 24 and March 24.

It indicated that 2,206,119 Ukrainians have taken refuge in Poland, 572,754 in Romania, and 376,748 in Moldova.

It explained that 113,000 people crossed into Russia between February 21 and 23 from Donetsk and Lugansk regions in eastern Ukraine.

It indicated that hundreds of thousands of those who crossed towards neighboring countries then headed to other European countries.


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 maintain complete neutrality, which Kyiv considers an “interference in its sovereignty” to end the operation.
