The Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) has recorded 9,394 civilian casualties since Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24. Of that number the UN said 4,253 had been killed while 5,141 had been injured. According to the UN statement 272 children were among those killed. The OHCHR said the actual number of civilians killed is likely to be far higher than the number provided. Most of the deaths were caused by heavy weapons like artillery and rocket launchers with the ability to cause destruction on a wide radius.
