Nearly 2,000 civilians have perished in Ukraine since Russia’s incursion, according to U.N.

According to the United Nations’ human rights agency, at least 1,982 civilians have died in Ukraine since Russia’s invasion in late February.

International human-rights watchdog Amnesty International says that because of reporting delays in areas where there are still a lot of violent clashes, the real number could be “considerably higher.”

According to the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, “the majority of civilian casualties were caused by the use of explosive weapons with a wide impact area, such as shelling from heavy artillery and multiple launch rocket systems, as well as missile and air strikes.”

At least 2,700 people have been killed, and the United Nations has stated that its figures include “only civilian deaths for which criminal proceedings have been initiated and where forensic expertise of dead bodies has been carried out.”

According to Ukrainian officials, more than 900 civilian bodies have been found in the area around Ukraine’s capital after Russian forces left.

According to police, the majority of those discovered had been fatally shot.

A total of 2,651 civilians have been injured, according to UN figures. This brings the total number of civilian casualties during the war to 4,633.
