The United Nations has published their latest findings on the numbers of civilian casualties in Ukraine. Since the first day of Russia’s full-scale invasion on Feb 24th, to June 20th, they’ve recorded a total of 10,308 corroborated civilian casualties: 4,597 killed and 5,711 injured.

A total of 4,597 killed (1,775 men, 1,186 women, 128 girls, and 144 boys, as well as 41 children and 1,323 adults whose sex is yet unknown).

A total of 5,711 injured (1,159 men, 810 women, 127 girls, and 168 boys, as well as 176 children and 3,271 adults whose sex is yet unknown).

As the below image graphically illustrates, the majority of casualties are due to shelling or bombing by planes. The United Nations also states the “actual casualty figures are much higher” – this due to the ongoing fighting and lack of corroborated information from Russian occupied areas, such as the city of Mariupol.
