After Russia’s attack, 902 people died in Ukraine, 1459 were injured – UN claims


Russia-Ukraine War: The United Nations Office for Human Rights (OHCHR) said on Sunday that at least 902 civilians have been killed and 1,459 injured in Ukraine as of midnight on March 19. The OHCHR said most of the casualties were caused by explosive weapons such as heavy artillery and multiple-launch rocket systems, missiles and air strikes. However, the actual toll is believed to be much higher as the OHCHR, which has a large surveillance team in the country, has not yet been able to obtain or verify casualties reports from several worst-affected cities, including Mariupol.

The bombing of an art school in Mariupol
Ukrainian officials said on Sunday that Russian forces had bombed an art school in the port city of Mariupol, where at least 400 people took refuge. This is the second time in a week that Russia has targeted a building where civilians have taken refuge. Earlier on Wednesday, Russian troops also bombed a theater in Mariupol. It is believed that there were about 1300 people inside it.

There was no immediate information on casualties in the alleged attack on the art school. Earlier officials had said that 130 people were evacuated after the theater was bombed.

Russia has been bombing Mariupol for three weeks
Russian troops have been bombing the strategically important port city of Mariupol for three weeks and the situation in the city has worsened. Mariupol officials say at least 2,300 people have died and some of them are buried in mass graves. There is a shortage of food, water and electricity in the city.

Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky, addressing the nation via video, said, “What those who attacked a peaceful city, is a terror that will be remembered for centuries to come.”
