The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) has recorded 4,521 civilian casualties in Ukraine since the Russian invasion started, including 1,932 killed and 2,589 injured.

The relevant statement was made by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights in a daily update on April 13, 2022.

In particular, among the killed, there were 485 men, 313 women, 31 girls and 54 boys, as well as 72 children and 977 adults whose sex is yet unknown.

Among the injured, there were 297 men, 222 women, 52 girls and 52 boys, as well as 145 children and 1,820 adults whose sex is yet unknown.

Most of the civilian casualties recorded were caused by the use of explosive weapons with a wide impact area, including shelling from heavy artillery and multiple launch rocket systems, and missile and air strikes.

OHCHR believes that the actual figures are considerably higher, as the receipt of information from some locations where intense hostilities have been going on has been delayed and many reports are still pending corroboration. This concerns, for example, Mariupol and Volnovakha (Donetsk Region), Izium (Kharkiv Region), Sievierodonetsk and Rubizhne (Luhansk Region), Trostianets (Sumy Region), where there are allegations of numerous civilian casualties. These figures are being further corroborated and are not included in the above statistics.
