WebPublicaPress (New York) — More than 7,000 civilians have been killed in Ukraine since Russia invaded last February, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) said.

As it is added, most of them were killed by explosive weapons, that is, in attacks by heavy artillery, rockets and air attacks.

The OHCHR said it had confirmed the death of 7,031 civilians but believed the true number of casualties was “significantly higher”, given the inaccessibility of some areas where the fighting is taking place.

Most of the recorded deaths occurred in areas controlled by Kyiv, 6,536, and in areas controlled by the Russians – 495. OHCHR did not specify who was responsible for the victims.

Ukraine said the number of civilians killed could be in the tens of thousands. Both countries deny that civilians are being targeted.
