Over 1,000 civilians killed after month of war, says UN
Geneva, Mar 24 (EFE).- At least 1,035 civilians have been killed and 1,650 others injured since Russia launched its invasion of Ukraine a month ago, the United Nations said Thursday.
Among the fatalities were 90 children, said the UN Human Rights Office (OHCHR).
Most of the victims were killed or wounded amid shelling, heavy artillery, or missile attacks, according to the OHCHR.
The UN said these figures might be much higher, given the lack of access to several areas mired in intense fighting such as Donetsk’s Mariupol and Volnovakha.
International law says attacks against civilians and non-military infrastructure during a conflict constitute war crimes.EFE
