More than 3,000 civilians killed in Ukraine: UN

The United Nations says more than 3,000 civilians have been killed so far in Russia’s military operation in Ukraine.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) says more than 3,000 civilians have been killed so far in Russian military operations in Ukraine since late February. Qatar-based Al Jazeera reported the news on Monday. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

The agency said most of the 3,153 people killed had been killed by the use of explosives over a wide area. These casualties were caused by missiles and air strikes. The agency said the deaths were caused by negligence on the part of those involved in the fighting.

The actual death toll could be much higher, the agency said, citing difficulties in obtaining information and data collection.

Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine on February 24 this year. At the beginning of the operation, Russia intensified its military operations in the Ukrainian capital, Kiev. But Russia has not been able to occupy Kiev for almost a month. At that time, the Russian forces faced strong resistance from the Ukrainian forces. Russia later said it would focus on operations in eastern Ukraine. Russia’s military operations are now centered around Danbas.
