UN: 816 dead and 3 million Ukrainian refugees from the Russian attack


On Friday, the United Nations announced that at least 816 civilians had been killed, and more than 3 million Ukrainians had taken refuge in neighboring countries as a result of the ongoing Russian offensive.

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights stated in a statement that 1,333 civilians were also injured between February 24 and March 18.


The Commission warned that the number of dead and wounded civilians could be greater than the announced figures.

In the same context, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees said in a statement that 3 million, 270,662 Ukrainians sought refuge in neighboring countries, more than half of them to Poland between February 24 and March 18.

It pointed out that 1,975,449 Ukrainians sought refuge in Poland, 508,692 in Romania, and 355,456 in Moldova, pointing out that 50,000 people crossed into Russia between February 18 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.


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

To end the operation, 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.”
