Civilian casualties from February 24, when Russia launched its war against Ukraine, to November 13 totaled 16,631 civilians (16,462 a week earlier), including 6,557 deaths (6,490), the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) said Monday.
“Most of the recorded civilian deaths or injuries were caused by the use of explosive weapons with a wide area of impact, including heavy artillery and multiple rocket launchers, as well as rocket and air strikes,” the document said of the UN data.
This applies, for example, to such settlements as Mariupol (Donetsk region), Izyum (Kharkiv region), Lysychansk, Popasna, and Severodonetsk (Luhansk region), where numerous civilian deaths or injuries have been reported.
According to confirmed UN data, 2,559 men, 1,752 women, 204 boys and 170 girls were killed, while the gender of 34 children and 1,838 adults could not yet be determined.
The 1,074 wounded included 297 boys and 208 girls, and 245 children whose sex could not yet be determined.
Compared to the figures of 6 November, five children were killed and five others wounded.
Whereas previously the OHCHR Daily Casualty Report was issued on a daily basis and then only on weekdays, it has become a weekly report since July. This summary, like the previous one, provides data by month.
According to them, March remains the deadliest month for civilians, with at least 3,326 deaths. In April, the number of civilian deaths due to the war dropped to 702, in May to 473, in June to 374 and in July to 360, according to the OHCHR publication. There were 355 deaths in the first five days of the war from February 24 to 28, 305 in August, 312 in September, 284 in October and 66 in the first 14 days of November, the UN points out.
The number of wounded in September – 926 – was higher than in October – 783 and August – 895 and slightly lower than in previous months – July – 1,100, June – 1,030, May – 1,016, while in April and March there were 1,254 and 2,410 wounded respectively.
According to the report, 61 people died and 173 others were wounded from large-area explosive weapons in November, while mines and explosive remnants of war killed five people and wounded 25 (11 percent of total casualties).
Government-controlled territories accounted for 81 percent of the casualties in November, according to the UN.
The summary traditionally states that the increase in numbers to the previous summary should not be attributed only to cases after November 6, as the Office verified a number of cases from previous days during that period.
If the war drags on, the maximum number of emigrants from Ukraine may reach 5 million citizens, said Ella Libanova, director of the Institute of Demography and Social Research of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.
“(…) In addition to the 1.2 million who are already abroad, Ukraine may additionally lose at least 500-600 thousand people. The maximum number of emigrants can reach 5 million. This scenario will become real if the war drags on. Under such conditions, there is the risk that after the lifting of martial law, men will start moving in with Ukrainian women with children,” Libanova said during a seminar on Tuesday.
It is noted that in the period from February 24 to September 19, about 8.4 million people left Ukraine. During the same period of time, 7.2 million people entered. At the moment, 1.2 million people from Ukraine are abroad.
“A significant part of them, except for women with children, are small border traffic, business trips, vacations, the departure of foreigners in the first days of the war, crossing borders for the purpose of preferential import of cars, etc.,” said the director of the Institute of Demography and Social Research.
She also noted that “if this wave of emigrants stays in Europe for more than a year, there is a risk that the majority will not return home,” due to the fact that a significant part of the Ukrainians who left are children, and “there is fierce competition for labor resources in the world. Europe is aging more than Ukraine and is compensating for this aging with emigrants.”
“People should feel like Ukrainians and maintain ties with Ukraine. This requires efforts both at the level of the state and local communities, communities, gardens, employers. It is important that employers keep the employment of workers who left Ukraine. Otherwise, after the war, we will lose labor force” , – emphasize at the Institute of Demography and Social Research.

Ukraine may become the first country to describe in detail civilian medicine during the war, practitioners and experts in the field of medicine expressed this opinion during a round table at the Interfax-Ukraine agency on Thursday.
“We can become the first nation to describe civilian medicine in detail during the war. Today there is nothing like it. There is only military medicine in war conditions, these are one-sided NATO and Russian articles,” said Andrey Beznosenko, head physician of the National Cancer Institute.
He noted that there have never been articles, information from a country that systematically analyzes what happened to civilian medicine during the war.
At the same time, Svetlana Lonskaya, business development director of the ADONIS medical group of companies, said that ADONIS has introduced medical field teams for the affected regions.
According to her, a group of two or three narrow specialists is being created who travel to the affected regions and provide free medical advice to those who wish.
She also noted that ADONIS is working on creating a more stable form of stem cells for easier transportation, as they are now transported frozen at a constant low temperature.
Lonskaya predicts that the innovative form of stem cells could be stored as a cream or hydrogel patches.
In turn, the head of the Department of Inflammatory Eye Pathologies and Microsurgical Treatment of Their Consequences of the VP Filatov Institute of Eye Diseases and Tissue Therapy of the National Academy of Medical Sciences of Ukraine Oleksandra Zborovskaya spoke about the need to create a supra-cluster ophthalmological center.
“The war convinced us of the need to create a supra-cluster ophthalmological center, since it is more profitable for the state to finance even the patient’s travel to the only center in the country where he can receive a closed cycle of ophthalmological care. Telemedicine has not justified our hopes. In ophthalmology, many things cannot be standardized, and methods There are simply no objective diagnostics,” Zborovskaya said.
Head of the Department of Cardiometabolic Diseases of the Clinic for Adults of the State Institution “Center for Pediatric Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine” Yevhen Marushko emphasized that the Ukrainian healthcare system has survived and continues to develop.
“Is there any other country in the world where new departments, new programs, new buildings, new directions are opened during the war? Our healthcare system has not only survived, it is developing,” Marushko said.

President of the European Parliament Roberta Metsola did not rule out that the war in Ukraine could lead to real famine in different regions of the world, and called on the heads of state and government of the EU countries to find ways to export food from Ukraine for export.
“The threat (of food insecurity) goes beyond Europe. It is possible that the world will face real hunger. If Ukraine is not allowed to work in its fields, we will face a global multi-year food shortage,” she said on Monday at an emergency EU summit.
Metsola accused Russia of blackmailing the whole world and “stealing” grain produced by Ukraine.
“We urgently need to find ways to ship grain from Ukraine to those regions of the world where it is most needed,” she urged. “We must expand the “corridors of solidarity” as announced by the European Commission, and explore other possibilities for the export of grain.”
