MADRID, Feb. 28 (Royals Blue) –
The Ukrainian Ministry of Health has updated this Monday the balance of civilian victims as a result of the Russian invasion and, although it maintains the provisional death toll at 352, it has already placed the number of injured above 2,000 – specifically, 2,040 –.
The count also specifies how many minors have already been victims of the conflict and for now there are 16 dead and 45 wounded, according to the UNIAN news agency.
The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, which has its own count, had only confirmed 102 dead civilians and another 300 wounded until Monday.
The official data from Ukraine will predictably increase in the coming hours, since the authorities have reported dozens of deaths on Monday in a projectile attack by the Russian Army against the city of Kharkov, the second most populous in the country.
Kharkiv has just come under massive artillery fire from Gradov. Dozens of deaths and hundreds of injuries,” said Anton Geraschenko, adviser to the Ministry of the Interior, in a message on his account on the social network Facebook.
