During this time, 36 men, 21 women, two boys and a girl were killed in Ukraine. The gender of another 44 killed is currently unknown.

“From 1 to 15 January 2023, OHCHR recorded 388 civilian casualties: 104 killed (36 men, 21 women, 1 girl, 2 boy, as well as 44 adults whose sex is yet unknown); and 284 injured (80 men, 39 women, 6 girls, 4 boys, as well as 8 children and 147 adults whose sex is yet unknown),” reported the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.

At the same time, the UN warns that some victims in Ukraine may not be included in these statistics, because currently, the organization is waiting for confirmation about them. Therefore, the real number of both killed and wounded during this period of time may be higher. As well as the death toll since the start of the full-scale invasion. For example, since February 24, 2022, 7,031 people have been killed, and another 11,327 have been injured.
