Civilian Casualties Before May 2022

Ukraine Conflict


The Russian invasion of Ukraine has caused many civilian casualties. Only from 4am on 24 February 2022, when the Russian Federation’s military action against Ukraine started, until 12 midnight on 1 March 2022, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) recorded 752 civilian casualties.

How many civilian casualties of the Russo-Ukrainian War will there be before May 2022?

The question will be resolved on May 1, 2022 using data from Reliefweb.

Reports of Reliefweb are based on information that the UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine (HRMMU) collected through interviews with victims and their relatives; witnesses; analysis of corroborating material confidentially shared with HRMMU; official records; open-source documents, photo and video materials; forensic records and reports; criminal investigation materials; court documents; reports by international and national non-governmental organizations; public reports by law enforcement and military actors; data from medical facilities and local authorities. All sources and information are assessed for their relevance and credibility and cross-checked against other information.
