Civilian Deaths in Ukrainian Cities in 2022

Ukraine Conflict

Question

As the consequence of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, The Guardian reports:

“Thousands of Ukrainians have left the country and as many as 100,000 are internally displaced after fleeing their homes following the attack ordered by Vladimir Putin.”

Lots of Ukrainians may be currently torn between trying to escape and sheltering in the city.

Will at least 50k civilians die in at least one major Ukrainian city in 2022?

This question will resolve as Yes if there is a minimum of 50,000 civilian deaths in at least one major Ukrainian city in between January 1, 2022 to January 1, 2023.

A major Ukrainian city is one with a population of more than 200,000 people as of the 2021 estimate, as reported by Wikipedia.

Resolution will be based on casualty reports by Ukrainian government organizations, multinational organizations or similar, either directly or via credible news sources.
