UN: 1,932 civilians killed in Ukraine as a result of the heat


The United Nations announced on Tuesday that at least 1,932 civilians have been killed and 2,589 injured in Ukraine since Russia launched its military operation in late February.


The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees said in a statement that 4,656,509 people have sought refuge in neighboring countries.

More than half of them traveled to Poland between February 24 and April 12 this year.

It indicated that 2,669,637 people have sought refuge in Poland, 709,249 in Romania and 434,342 in Hungary.

She explained that 113,000 people crossed into Russia between February 21 and 23 from the 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.


The International Organization for Migration announced that 7.1 million civilians were displaced within Ukraine.

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.
