The United Nations said Monday it had recorded 102 civilians killed, including seven children, and 304 wounded, since the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, but warned that the real figures are considerably higher.
Most of these civilians were killed by wide-area explosive weapons, including heavy artillery fire, multiple rocket launchers and air strikes. The real numbers are, I fear, considerably higher, said UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet at the opening of the Human Rights Council.
