Civilian casualties from February 24, when Russia started the war against Ukraine, to 24:00 on July 11 amounted to 11,544 civilians (as of July 3 – 11,152), including 5,024 dead (4,889), the Office of the UN High Commissioner reported Human Rights Council (OHCHR) on Tuesday.
“Most of the reported civilian deaths or injuries were caused by the use of explosive weapons with a large area of effect, including shelling from heavy artillery and multiple launch rocket systems, as well as rocket and air strikes,” the document notes on UN data.
This is the case, for example, in Mariupol (Donetsk region), Izyum (Kharkiv region), Lysychansk, Popasna and Severodonetsk (Luhansk region), where numerous civilian deaths or injuries were reported.
According to confirmed UN data, 1905 men, 1316 women, 161 boys and 141 girls died, while the sex of 41 children and 1460 adults has not yet been determined.
Among the 6,520 wounded were 202 boys and 144 girls, as well as 187 children whose gender has not yet been determined.
Compared to July 3, eight children were killed and 12 more were injured.
If earlier the OHCHR report on the number of casualties was published daily, and then only on weekdays, now it has become a weekly one. In this report, as in the previous one, data are also given by months.
According to them, the deadliest month for civilians was March, with a minimum of 3,028 deaths, while in April their number dropped to 660, in May to 453 and in June to 361.
From 1 to 11 July, according to the UN, 159 people died, while in the first five days of the war from 24 to 28 February – 336.
According to the report, in July, 157 people died from explosive weapons with a large impact zone and another 364 were injured, while mines and explosive remnants of war – respectively 2 and 2 (1% of total casualties).
The summary also traditionally states that increases from the previous report should not be attributed only to cases after 3 July, as during this period the Office verified a number of cases from previous days.
