Ukraine emergency service says over 2,000 civilians killed so far

Ukraine’s emergency service says over 2,000 civilians have been killed so far in Russia’s invasion of the country, according to Reuters.

It adds that hundreds of buildings have been destroyed, among them hospitals, homes, kindergartens and more.

“Children, women and defense forces are losing their lives every hour,” the service says.

Meanwhile Moscow says 498 Russian troops have been killed in Ukraine, in the first death toll it has published since the invasion began.

Ukraine has claimed the toll is far higher, at nearly 6,000.
