CDS Daily brief (05.12.22) | CDS comments on key events
Since the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, as of December 4, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights recorded 17,181 civilian casualties, including 6,702 dead and 10,479 wounded. The residents of Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts were the most affected. It is noted that the cause of deaths and injuries was mainly the use of explosive weapons with a wide impact zone, including shelling from heavy artillery, rocket salvo systems, rockets and airstrikes. However, OHCHR emphasizes that the actual figures for casualties are much higher, as information from some places where intense fighting continues is delayed.
