“Total civilian casualties from 24 February 2022 to 5 February 2023:
-a total of 7,155 killed (2,853 men, 1,927 women, 180 girls, and 226 boys, as well as 32 children and 1,937 adults whose sex is not yet known);
-a total of 11,662 injured (2,576 men, 1,833 women, 248 girls, and 339 boys, as well as 264 children and 6,402 adults whose sex is not yet known),” clarified the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.
In addition, the OHCHR recorded 177 killed and 520 injured civilians in Ukraine from January 1 to January 31, 2023.
The organization stresses that the actual death toll of killed Ukrainians is much higher because there are delays in receiving information from some places where fighting is ongoing, and many reports still need to be confirmed.
“Most of the civilian casualties recorded were caused by the use of explosive weapons with wide area effects, including shelling from heavy artillery, multiple launch rocket systems, missiles and air strikes,” added the OHCHR.
