UN confirms at least 816 dead in Ukraine

The UN says at least 816 people are dead and 1,333 injured in Ukraine.

The fatalities include 152 men, 116 women, 16 boys, seven girls, plus 36 children and 489 adults whose gender has not been determined.

The United Nations Human Rights Office says most of the casualties are due to “the use of explosive weapons with a wide impact area, including shelling from heavy artillery and multiple-launch rocket systems and missile airstrikes.”

The UN says the actual figures are likely “considerably higher,” but counting is difficult due to the fog of war.

The UN figures do not appear to include military casualties.

Western intelligence estimates over 7,000 Russian troops have been killed.

The mayor of Mariupol has said over 1,200 civilians have died in his city alone.
