According to the Ukrainian prosecutor general, the number of victims is likely to be much higher, as Ukrainian authorities do not have access to areas held by the Russian military.

More than eight thousand three hundred civilians have lost their lives so far since the Russian army invaded the Ukrainian territory on February 24, the Prosecutor General Andriy Kostin announced yesterday in Kyiv.
