Russian invasion causes over 10,000 civilian deaths in Ukraine, UN says

More than 10,000 civilians have been killed in Ukraine since Russia’s invasion last year, the United Nations says, with about half of the deaths in the past three months taking place far behind the front lines, Al Jazeera reported.

More than 560 children have been killed, and more than 18,500 people have been injured since the start of the conflict on February 24, 2022, said the UN mission, which has monitors across the country.

The vast majority of the deaths have been caused by explosive weapons with a wide-area impact, such as shells, missiles and cluster munitions, the UN said.
