Among those injured:

  • 413 boys and 295 girls
  • 271 children whose sex has not yet been identified

The death toll stands at:

  • 3,664 men, 2,173 women
  • 260 boys and 203 girls
  • the sex of 31 children and 1,900 adults has not yet been determined

The organization emphasizes that the actual number of deaths is much higher, as information from some places where intense fighting continues is delayed. Many reports still need to be confirmed.

Earlier, the UN reported that as of 15 January 2023, OHCHR had recorded 18,358 civilian casualties in Ukraine. The confirmed death toll exceeded 7,000. Another 11,327 civilians were injured.
