UN releases new report on number of victims of Russian aggression among Ukrainian civilians

Since the beginning of Russia's full-scale military aggression in Ukraine, more than 9.6 thousand civilians have been killed and more than 17.5 thousand people have been injured

This is stated in a new report by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).

The data includes reported cases of civilian deaths and injuries in Ukraine due to hostilities following Russia's large-scale invasion since February 24, 2022, and as of September 10, 2023.

Thus, during this period, OHCHR recorded 27,149 civilian casualties in the country:

  • 9614 were killed,

  • 17535 were injured.

In the first ten days of September, the number of civilian casualties in Ukraine, according to the UN, amounted to 292 people. Among them:

  • 55 were killed (29 men, 21 women, 1 girl, and 4 adults whose gender is not yet known),

  • and 237 were injured (101 men, 77 women, 7 boys, 2 girls, and 50 adults of unknown gender).

At the same time, OHCHR notes that the actual numbers are much higher, as "information from some areas where intense fighting is taking place is delayed and many reports are still awaiting confirmation." This is the case, for example, in Mariupol, Lysychansk, Popasna and Sievierodonetsk, where there are reports of numerous civilian casualties.

  • On September 5, the UN International Commission of Inquiry on Violations in Ukraine stated during a visit to Kyiv that it did not have sufficient evidence to recognize genocide in the country.

  • And on September 10, the UN Special Rapporteur on Torture, Alice Jill Edwards, said that the torture of Ukrainian civilians and prisoners of war by Russian officers showed that it had become part of Russia's systemic policy against Ukraine.
