Ukraine: Civilian casualties as of 24:00 9 April 2022 [EN/RU/UK]


Date: 10 April 2022

From 4 a.m. on 24 February 2022, when the Russian Federation’s armed attack against Ukraine started, to 24:00 midnight on 9 April 2022 (local time), the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) recorded 4,232 civilian casualties in the country: 1,793 killed and 2,439 injured. This included:

  • a total of 1,793 killed (458 men, 294 women, 27 girls, and 46 boys, as well as 69 children and 899 adults whose sex is yet unknown)

  • a total of 2,439 injured (279 men, 213 women, 47 girls, and 46 boys, as well as 136 children and 1,718 adults whose sex is yet unknown) o In Donetsk and Luhansk regions: 1,880 casualties (642 killed and 1,238 injured)  On Government-controlled territory: 1,534 casualties (571 killed and 963 injured)  On territory controlled by the self-proclaimed ‘republics’: 346 casualties (71 killed and 275 injured) o In other regions of Ukraine (the city of Kyiv, and Cherkasy, Chernihiv, Kharkiv,
    Kherson, Kyiv, Mykolaiv, Odesa, Sumy, Zaporizhzhia, Dnipropetrovsk and Zhytomyr regions), which were under Government control when casualties occurred: 2,352 casualties (1,151 killed and 1,201 injured)
    Most of the civilian casualties recorded were caused by the use of explosive weapons with a wide impact area, including shelling from heavy artillery and multiple launch rocket systems, and missile and air strikes.
    OHCHR believes that the actual figures are considerably higher, as the receipt of information from some locations where intense hostilities have been going on has been delayed and many reports are still pending corroboration. This concerns, for example, Mariupol (Donetsk region), Izium (Kharkiv region), Popasna (Luhansk region), and Borodianka (Kyiv region), where there are allegations of numerous civilian casualties. These figures are being further corroborated and are not included in the above statistics.
    OHCHR notes the report of the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine, according to which as of 8 a.m. 10 April (local time), 176 children had been killed and at least 336 injured.
