The humanitarian impact of the ongoing military clashes across Ukraine continues to exacerbate. As of 22 March, OHCHR reports 2,571 civilian casualties, including 977 killed, figures that are likely much higher and will continue to rise. Less than a month since the military offensive began on 24 February, the confirmed civilian death toll had already surpassed the number of people killed during the second-deadliest year of the armed conflict in eastern Ukraine – 2015 – when more than 955 civilians were killed. In Donetska and Luhanska oblasts (east), the civilian toll continues to mount, with the Government-controlled areas (GCA) bearing the brunt of the recent escalation. In the two eastern oblasts, OHCHR reports 1,102 casualties (224 killed and 621 injured in GCA, and 55 killed and 202 injured in NGCA), while civilian casualties in other parts of Ukraine have reached 1,469.
